What the country needs this is your thesis and a lot of people it said it but it's worth reminding us right.
We need more rich people that the president quote loves to excoriating not more taxes from those who already exist.
Well that's exactly right in -- a look at the new IRS statistics that just came out.
A couple weeks ago what they show is one of the reasons that tax revenues are now down as low as they've been any time in about fifty years.
Is that the number of about rich people people who are filing returns with a million dollars -- -- cover more.
Has fallen almost by a third in just the last 45 year or so.
You know if you want more money you gotta get more rich people and we were producing less fewer and fewer millionaires all the time and it's a big reason why we have.

Vs other why won't they ever just cut spending right now and -- Just say this you know I.
I don't get an appointment let's just do this let's just do the Cox.
Yeah -- because we've got we're spending a trillion dollars more than we're taking on what has every corporation doing what is every household doing they're cutting their expanded.
Actually getting that's your point of well you know we need growth to create more millionaires and billionaires and that's the problem and that's obviously the big fear of tumbling off the clinics.
-- -- about ago although let me correct you right -- is this is when I pet peeves.
If you cut government spending that is good for the economy it's not bad for the economy I am so tired of this I want.
I he has embedded inside of the -- out of Ali Al Aqsa is at Minneapolis Jane standout right OK you got -- exactly right and.

You know what that's the same kind of.
Economic logic they gave us this 830 billion dollar stimulus bill which was supposed to get down upon -- it got -- -- -- for.
Thanksgiving of course I was all day out of you know let's talk particulars you know Boehner is talking about revenue he's -- -- on the table -- in your -- this morning you reference some.
Middle ground possibilities like increasing the -- fifty threshold even 500000 dollars you're even million dollars -- you know what -- likelihood of that actually -- I'm not by the -- I'm not endorsing the -- I'm just gonna be good about just talking about options that people are talking about another and I think that's you know very very possible middle ground position.
Another possibility to think about is maybe suffering -- separating out the tax rate that is imposed gotten.
Business income vs salary income saw you know somebody like got the -- James who -- -- money and salary they would.
Pay -- higher rate but people who actually have business income they pay a lower rate.
Good -- even more in love having you like -- so fired up come back basically if but I think they keep him.
