Rich Americans WORKED for their money, they shouldn't have it taken away!

So does everyone else. Everyone pays taxes. I don't think you thought the debate through, because 1 round, and with no case to argue against. If you want I will debate with you again, if you set up a better debate.

You can't say "Only some worked for their money, many inherited it" without remembering that at some point, someone in their family worked for it, so you'd essentially be taxing that person further, who worked for it to provide benefit to their family.

And even so, they need to contribute even more, because this country gave them the opportunity to do so.

Reasons for voting decision: a single opinion isnt a debate, and con failed to argue his case at all so arguments to the pro. Conduct as well since this was a one round debate that con didnt even care to sink any effort into
