Sanders floats top tax rate of over 50%

June 12, 2015

sandersbernie_042215gnSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a Democratic presidential candidate, says he would support raising the tax rate on the wealthiest Americans to over 50 percent.

“We’re working right now on a comprehensive tax package, which I suspect will, for the top marginal rates, go over 50 percent,” Sanders said on PBS’s “Charlie Rose” program. The current top rate is 39.6 percent.

The self-described democratic socialist said he is running on a platform of “redistribution of wealth,” citing “grotesque levels of wealth inequality in this country.”

    The top richest 1%er Democrats and Republicans pay 40% of the Federal income taxes anyway. Bill Gates, the richest American at $85 billion, pays 15% taxes. Tha’ts a lot of taxes on $85 billion. He is also a personal buddy of Obozo and gives millions to the Dim party. Bloomingidiotburg is the 13th wealtheist man in the world.

    Another progressive, unconstitutional Democrat like skunk Obama. Instead of carrying out the law of the land Bernie wants to make it up as he goes along.

    Hay Bernie, and I would refuse to pay it.

  • KentS

    Bernie’s on the loose again. His embalmer must be watering it down to cover his taxes.

    That 50% tax rate would also apply to all of the fed bureaucrats and politicos and their minions and cronies.

    • That’s very true, many of whom would support the higher tax – ON THEMSELVES.

      • Ronney

        No I’m sure they would be exempt from the tax
