  • Definitely do it!

    The people who use money poorly will finally get some karma coming there way. The rich will still have more than enough to provide for themselves. Plus, they will help fund projects and charities to help low income families. The top one percent have almost 35 percent of America's total wealth while the bottom eighty own 15 percent. These are all facts stated by a MIDDLE SCHOOL student!

  • Taxing the wealthy will still leave them wealthy!

    Increasing taxes on the wealthy will not affect them drastically. The wealthy will stay wealthy even after taxes. It wouldn't make sense to increase taxes on the middle-class folks because middle-class barely gets by on the tax rate now. If you tax the wealthy, they would still be way better if than middle-class people. So why not, take this money that the wealthy are being taxed and put it into programs that can help those with less, since the rich makes waaay more anyways. -Hoai

  • Increase the taxes on the wealthy

    Taxing the wealthy will not hurt them In any significant way because they make more than enough to support themselves. This way, the money can be spent on government programs that can help support low income families with basic necessities. They should raise the taxes on the wealthy. - Mary

  • YAASSSSSSS they should

    Bllionaires really can't have it all. There are people struggling everyday trying finding ways to feed & support their families while ppl who actually have the money waste it on designer clothes, & vacations that they don't even need. Some people could work their ass off & still can't make enough to live comfortably. -nina

  • Increase taxes on the wealthy

    The rich and wealthy people already have more then what they need unlike the lower class people. The lower class only make enough to get through the day so i think the government should increase the tax on the wealthy and use that money to help the lower class out by giving more money to the programs the lower class use. -Kun Z.

  • " ...Small loan of 1 million dollars..." - Shitnold Trump

    American should increase the tax on the wealthy because as Bernie sanders says, "'The top one-tenth of 1 percent' of Americans 'own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent.'" So, there you go. If the billionaires basically control the U.S. with their money, and there is a way to make them give some money to the community, we should definitely tax the wealthy.
    - Annmarie Cong

  • Yes they should

    They definitely should increase Tax on the rich because they should be able to pay they're equal amount of tax threat is fair to people who work low paying jobs and only make little to what they get. It wouldn't not hurt the rich to pay more tax since they have enough money to let them more lifetimes -Leidon B.

  • The Bad will Eventually Get What is Coming to Them

    People who misuse their fortune will eventually get into a lot of trouble. Take Justin Bieber for example. He got into a heap of trouble and look what has happened to him? He is now being sent back to Canada. So no matter what happens it will come to bite you no matter how hard you try to hide it.

  • Leave the wealthy alone!

    Leave the wealthy alone! Not all of them have obtained their fortunes through corruption, stealing, or crime. Most had actually worked hard to build their fortune. Many had started out with nothing. And now that they've got money, some jealous idiots can't get over it. "Let's tax the rich and take it all away." Don't lose sleep over someone else's money, go work and make a fortune of your own.

  • Dont punish the wealthy.

    I am by no means a wealthy person but I still believe in treating people fairly. The wealthy should not be punished for being successful. Everyone talks of the tax breaks for the rich but they already pay a disproportionate amount of taxes. Do a little resarch and see. IRS figures show the top 1 percent of earners take home 16.9 percent of the nation's total income, but pay 36.7 percent of the nation's income taxes.
    The top 5 percent take home a little more than 31 percent of total income but pay almost 59 percent of all income taxes.
    And the top 10 percent earn just over 43 percent of the total income but pay more than 70 percent of all income taxes.
    The other 90% of us only pay 30% of income taxes. It seems that the majority of the people for more taxes on the wealthy pay no taxes at all in fact 47% of Americans paid no income taxes at all in 2011. Just like in most other situations in our country it is easier to point the finger at someone else than to hold ourselves accountable.

  • No the U.S. should not increase taxes on the wealthy

    Instead of focusing on who is taxed what and who isn't, we ought to be looking at why people was taxed at all, no matter how much money they make. It simply is not fair that we can work our butts off for an income, and the government has the right to take some of that away from us. It doesn't matter if you make $10,000 a year or $250,000, it's still wrong. So no I don't think the U.S. should increase taxes on the wealthy, but rather abolish the income tax as a whole for everyone.

  • Misconstrued notions of rich people

    What people don't understand in the US is that we have the highest amount of self made millionaires in the world. Does it mean that they got there by inheriting money or corruption? Definitely not, most of them got there by having good timing, working with perseverance, and finally making wise financial decisions. At that point they can spend as they like, who are we to tell them what they would spend their money on. Here's a question, since most middle class or working class Americans make far more than laborer in 3rd world countries, why don't they give to charity? Could it be because of stuff like food, rent, or fuel? Or maybe they want to take their significant others on a date or biy presents. At the end of the day we all need enough to pay our bills and also get the things we want with our hard earned money. I think most people just have a misunderstanding of rich people in general.
    Now to the main point, our country is capitalistic and run by the free market. In this system a consistent problem is income inequality. Raising taxes on the wealthy still makes them wealthy, but it leaves them wondering where their money goes. Does their money really fund the enhancement of public education, expand grants, or improve infrastructure? Not in drastic ways, especially when education budgets are continually cut or when projects still exist despite numerous reforms.
    Case in point, raising taxes on the wealthy isn't going to solve our problems with income inequality. It's a constant, some people will always have more than others.

  • Rondale Robinson Practical problems evident

    I dont think they should because those people worked hard to become wealthy and they worked harder than the rest of those people that's not wealthy but at the same time i would be glad at the same time because it's getting the others better opportunist for the poor people

  • Practical probs evident

    No they should not for many reasons. So many wealthy people will just move to other parts of the world where there is no income tax. This happened in 1972, many people moved overseas and as a result the american government lost millions in tax dollars.

    The rich are the ones who went through (usually) years of education to get to where they are. I agree they should contribute to society, but 50% of their annual income is contributing how much more of a percentage are you planning on taking away? 60%, 70%? Half of there money is already too much even more than half will just cause too many problems and will just produce an upset and unequal society.

  • Middle class will still be hurt no matter what tax increase goes to who

    Most of the big corporations that will be hit by this tax increase will only increase their prices on the goods they're selling..Leaving consumers to pay more so the wealthy can keep earning at a successful rate. So in the end the middle class consumers will still have to pay. Plus why are we trying to split the American people into who has to pay more? We are all citizens, all here for limited time- just trying to make a decent living. Why can't we just cut everyone's tax rate by a certain percent? We would certainly see American people thrive more economically if people used the money to proper use. History proves what's more effective. Cutting taxes-yes. Dividing tax rates and putting the American people against each other-no.
