    You suggest she surrender 70% of her salary but you can't articulate why she should do so?

    She had no clue she had to provide medical insurance for her staff. So how can we expect her to understand that if she thinks a 70% tax on people is a good thing.......she is including herself in that. That would never occur to her.

    Bobby supports the elite class being "above it all" .........meaning untaxable. So, I have to wonder, if there is this immune-to-taxes elite group, who in the world are the people in the group that need to pay 70% of their income?

    Funny that you need someone to "articulate" for you the reason an American pays taxes.

    If the tax rate becomes 70% like Ocasio wants it to become, maybe YOU can articulate why she shouldn't have to pay it.

    Did I ask why an American pays taxes? No.

    If the tax rate were 70% for every dollar earned, well then she would pay it on every dollar she earned, as that would be the amount withheld.

    What are you talking about? I asked Phil to articulate why she should surrender 70% of her salary. We're still necking down to the answer to that, as he hasn't said whether she said everyone should pay 70% of every dollar earned. If he feels like answering that question, then he will have articulated what he means.
