A majority of millionaires support a wealth tax on those worth $50 million or more, but their support declines for a tax on those worth $10 million, according to a new poll.

Basically, Dems want to tax more - just not to pay it themselves. The Dems always virtue signal by saying that we need to pay more in taxes, but they whine and cry when their desire actually comes true. We see this with the wealth tax (I support it). They want it on worth of over $50M - they foolishly think it will never trickle down and effect them....

But we know their true colors already. When the SALT cap was instituted, we got mass crying, whining and illegal 'charity' tax evasion to avoid paying their 'fair share'. Basically, Democrats in a nutshell.

That's not what the graph says, sport.

Support for tax on $10 million or more is 83%.

A 5% drop from $50 million or more.

What's funny is your summary actually describes Republicans, but we knew that already.

Also, please tell me your "clients" are aware you can't read a basic bar graph...

Maybe they do. And maybe they aren't like you, who seems incapable of believing somebody is less greedy than you are.

I think millionaires/billionaires and Ruskie trolls need to be taxed more. A LOT more.

It's no surprise nor a new trend that most people support higher taxes on folks who have a lot more than they do.

Do you think folks with a net worth less than $5 million think they run with the Billionaire crowd?

most folks with a net worth less than $5 million less than 65 years old work for a living and earn a salary just like everyone else does.....a salary that matters to them.

Having $10 million and supporting a tax on those with more than $50 million is no different than those with $10k supporting additional taxes on those with more than $50k.

It's easy, even rational to support increased taxes when you're going to reap the rewards without having to provide anything in return. Dig a little deeper though, and you might find that the return on your vote will not be as fruitful as you might have expected.

Liz and Bernie can impose taxes that appear to make rich people poorer, but whether they can actually affect that outcome is a different story. I feel like they think everyone else is just as dumb as they are.
