And the advantage of having rich people who bolt at the first hint of having to pay their way instead of letting all the little people do the heavy lifting is what? And please don’t say jobs, because the existence of rich people is no guarantee new jobs will be created. Demand is what creates new jobs, and it isn’t the rich who create demand, it’s the people who have to spend everything they make just to survive that do.

It wouldn’t hurt for you to read up a little on basic economics and to try to understand what “rich” people actually do for the economy. I’ll use Exxon Mobil as an example. Go here and read their 2011 Financial Statement. But more importantly, for 2011 “Income tax expense, both current and deferred, was $31.1 billion,…” They paid $31.1 Billion last year. Not paying their “fair share” right?

I could go on, but I have bigger fish to fry.
