Tyrannical French Millionaire Tax shot down by court



quote:

Embattled French President Francois Hollande suffered a fresh setback Saturday when France's highest court threw out a plan to tax the ultrawealthy at a 75 percent rate, saying it was unfair.

Our SC would probably vote the tax was a fee and therefore legal....

I actually wanted this so we could point to France as to why we don't overtax the rich.

They didn't strike it down because they thought it was too much. They thought the application was discriminatory. A married couple who both have salaries of $900,000, for a combined household income of 1.8 million, wouldn't be taxed at 75%, but a married couple where the husband earns 1.1 million and the wife is a stay at home mother would be taxed at 75%.

I wanted it to pass so we could point to the crashing the French economy would do as all the wealthy moved away as an example of why over-taxing the rich is a bad idea.

Tyrannical means to me: a government run by leftist who want to keep their subjects down and out and dependent on government. What better way to control the people than by making them dependent. No need to force them to bend to your authority that way.

A tyrant is someone who doesn't rule by law; or rather, his whim is law.

On this ruling, it will probably mean more taxation, if Hollande decides to pursue it. Though I hope he won't.

When you add up all of the taxes, a married couple making about $120K per year pay about 50-60% in taxes, but would readily vote Republican so Romney doesn't have to pay more than 14%. Go figure.
