Well, after watching the richest in our country pony up billions of dollars in a disasterous attempt to start down the road to a plutocracy, the argument that we can't raise taxes on the wealthiest one-percent is a now-provable joke! They deserve a special surtax-rate of their very own, over and above that of us mere mortals that earn under a few million. Now I recognize that their is a small possibility that this might upset this group a wee-bit, but lets be honest here; each individually, using one-dollar bills, could weight down a small ship causing it to sink to the bottom of the ocean!
To accomplish the extracting of some of the gold ingots from this group we will need a plan. Every plan needs a good slogan for those earning under three-million. We can call the surtax; the Citizens United Tax-Rate. This conjours up the image of billions of dollars of TV political ads that were plastered on the screens we use for enjoyment. These Citizens United billionaires coverted our family rooms into personal torture chambers, billions spent and lost for nothing. Now that's discreationary money to behold!
It's possible some Republicans in congress might be induced to object. That leads to the second part of our plan. This surtax money can be used for the express purpose of infrastucture projects to put America back to work. We will identify projects that will be used to start priming the jobs pump. Many initial projects should target the district of Republicans protesting the new Citizens United rate. That allows us to identify exactly whose interest congressmen really represent.
We can allow the Citizens United surtax rate to have a sunset trigger. Lets say it expires when the unemployment rate falls below five-percent. I predict, that within one-year, America will have jobs comming out of its proverbial ears!
