Jay -Z millionaire for more taxes.
Just saw this on CNN. Further proof that there are rich with a conscious. Hip Hop artist and millionaire Jay Z says he'd be willing to pay higher taxes to pay for "things that matter" like health care and education.
But those uber libertarians don't get it. When millionaires like John Stewart, and Stephen Cobert, and even billionaires like Warren Buffet say "somethings wrong" the rest of the corporate world has no excuse. We are not talking about people who are communist or socialists. We are talking about people who benefit from the same open market the fear mongers on the right use to make their money.
This is NOT a left or right issue. It is however a monopoly issue and a class warfare issue. It was a class war started on the middle class and working poor that started 30 years ago. Those policies have exploded the cost of living and pay gap and health care costs while profits are bigger than ever, without regards to how they make that money.
No folks, no more, no more lies and no more bullshit about the laziness of the middle and poor. The lie is being exposed and the monopoly of corporate power will end.
The 99% will win because we outnumber those who have created this monopoly. The world will not end and the rich will still be rich despite the bullshit lie that the rest of us are trying to rob them.
So my advice to those with the money and the power, start caring. But either way you will not win long term. And despite what you might think, the world will not end when we do win.
If the people above who WHO ARE RICH can do it, you can too. You have no excuse.
