    I think billionaires should be taxed until they're not billionaires anymore

    1 billion dollars should be the limit for anyone to have.

    The founder of Amazon has 190 billion which is ridiculous.

    OP, let's remove the actual criminally stolen wealth over centuries by Trillionaires+ like the Payseurs, Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Royals, Vatican, (insert list of other unknown more powerful and wealthy entities here), etc.

    They are the actual thieves and enemy of humanity.

    Billionaires are actually puppets. Imagine where we/you stand.

    LMAO at anyone who gets pissed off at the success of others.

    Even if Jeff Bezos was limited $1 Billion, you would never see a penny of the rest.

    If success is limited, then there would be no incentive to go into business for yourself.

    Bernie can suck it. Fukkin' freeloading POS.

    Edit: BTW, Jeff Bezos is $190 B on paper. It's not cash in the bank. He has to sell his stock for cash. Last week he sold a little more than $1 B in stock.

    The funny thing is that when billionaires start using their $ to accomplish good things your 'team' calls its it toxic philanthropy.

    The left wants to redistribute wealth not because it will help people. They want you to be terrified of what happens if they stop doing this and then vote accordingly.

    The best way to create a new slave is to trick them into placing the chains on themselves while being grateful for the opportunity.

    If the left really wanted things to be better for everyone they would encourage philanthropy understanding that being free from government waste the good per dollar ratio would be vastly improved.

    I find someone having 100 billions very unnecessary, to say the least. Remove 99 percent of that wealth and they would still have enough money left for their next generations to not work a minute in their lives.

    For sure should be taxed more.

    That’s too harsh and a big jump that’ll never happen. Start with a bigger number like $50B and then work your way down $1B a year.

    So most of his net worth is tied up in stock in the company, meaning that it represents actual warehouses and vehicles and so on. Once he reaches one billion stock net worth, should he then distribute his stock in the company to other shareholders? Because if not than your economic progress in a country just got thrown out the window. Imagine a company that makes 300 billion dollars a year not being able to exist because poor progressives didn't think it was fair that someone should be worth a certain amount of money.

    You're coming at it from the wrong angle. It's not that billionaires shouldn't be allowed to exist. It's that regular working people should not be exploited and should be given a fair wage proportionate to the value they have in the company. You used to be able to go on a worker's strike to demand higher wages or better working conditions, but now the country is flooded with both legal and illegal immigrants who will work for whatever wages the company offers because back home life sucked ass and they don't want to go back.

    We have Conservative Socialism for Billionaires and Large Corporations while we have rugged pull yourself up by the bootstraps individualism for the Middle Class and Working Class. If we didn't have Conservative Socialism, thousands of billionaires, CEOs, Corporate Boards, etc would have jumped out of windows on 50th floor and committed suicide like in 1929.
    If we didn't have Conservative Socialism and all kinds of Conservative Safety Nets for Billionaires and Corporations, then after these corporations and billionaires went bankrupt, then all the money would have trickled down to the middle and working classes.

    That's wealth, not cash. He has to sell shares of ownership to his company to tap into a lot of that.

    Amazon btw employs over 1 MILLION people and has a min hiring wage of $15/hr.

    His wealth is also tied up into building spaceships (Blue Origin), Washington Post (bleh), other investments, charity foundations, property, etc.

    You don't get something like Blue Origin, or Tesla, or SpaceX if there's a wealth limit. You don't even get people TRYING because what's the point?

    Sometimes it feels like it sucks sure. Like his ex wife is now donating half of her haul from the divorce. She just dropped 1.8 BILLION on far left non-profits.

    OP trolling with a picture of black Nemo but anyway the problem with this thinking is there's no good mechanism to tax billionaires, it's not like their wealth is a massive pile of hundos in a warehouse somewhere. Also, there's not really any need to take it off them, they are allowed to be ridiculously wealthy if they can do it.

    More constructive than working out ways to stop them 'being too rich' is to examine the corrupt nexus between business and politicians. I don't care if rich people want to buy gold plated yachts and sail around buried under a pile of hookers and cocaine. I do care when they conspire with elected crooks and screw over the nation.

    “Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar. They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace. But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.”

    Bernie can suck it. Fukkin' freeloading POS.

    Edit: BTW, Jeff Bezos is $190 B on paper. It's not cash in the bank. He has to sell his stock for cash. Last week he sold a little more than $1 B in stock.

    I don't agree with the thread title, but this part would not be true. No one would think "oh, I can only earn a maximum of $1 billion?? Well F that I'm not going to own my own business then"

    Well, you are over-thinking, because what are the odds that any business can be a Billion dollar business?

    So, if you were limited to making say $5 million, for a business that you spent years developing with great potential and then when you hit $5 million in revenue, the government steps in and says, "Whoa, buddy. Anything you make from now on is Uncle Sams." That fair?

    If you had a crystal ball, and the above was the case, would you still go in business? My post wasn't thinking about Bezos. It was about anyone with ambition.

    A 1B cap on income would mean Amazon wouldnt exist. Neither would aerospace companies, Walmart, the airline industry, etc, etc, etc.

    Obviously this is all hypothetical but here we go....

    1) Yes i still would go into business because $5 million would still put pretty much anyone who's not already in the top tier in a much better financial situation.

    2) OP didn't say single digit millionaires. There's a huge difference between $5 Million and $1 billion. Same as there is a huge difference between $1 billion and $1 trillion essentially the Trillion dollar cap wouldn't stop anyone at all because no one would expect to ever reach that limit.

    3) At $1 billion you essentially have enough money to live extremely lavish life for 10 lifetimes. When you are these people who own billions of dollars your options are essentially handing out large sums of money to investments of your choosing or hoarding. $1 billion cap wouldn't change their lifestyle really at all, just instead of them getting to choose how they doll out millions here and millions there, it would instead be the government choosing.

    4) All that said I'm still against it, but I doubt a cap set at that dollar amount would alter their lives very much.

    I think the OP is trolling, and as per usual the R/P has taken a massive bite. If the OP was on the back of a boat fishing he would have been dragged overboard.
