I don't understand why there is this belief that the Uber Rich have to hoard money and decrease investments if their taxes are raised.
It's almost like the philosophy is "I have to be a money making jerk, it's in my nature, if you tax me more I'm just going to be a bigger jerk, because it is not an option for me to make less money".
Why is that not an option? Are they going to go broke? Bankrupt? Heck, the earning potential (and spending power) of the Middle Class has dropped drastically since 2000. So the over-arching message is "The Uber Rich shouldn't have to make less money but it's Ok if you do".
Does anyone else feel this way?
