Yeah Bernie "How much is enough?"

By now you've probably heard the Bernie Sanders rant chastising rich people with a "how much is enough" blast.

Over at the Huffington Post, Brent Willcom, one of the readers noted..........

“How much is enough? I couldn't have said it any better myself. Spot on Bernie!”

Once again, I throw out my challenge to Brent and any of you other "progressives" who believe that the rich do not pay enough.

Take a married couple...... each spouse making $125,000 ($250k total) with two kids, a mortgage commensurate with their "rich" lifestyle and tell me what dollar amount would they have to pay before you would shut up about the fact that they pay so little.

I don't want percentages I want a whole dollar fairness amount for the couple above.

There are over 13,000 comments to this post, I went through about 40 of them to see what any of the readers believe is "fair" for the rich. I didn't find one commenter. It's either because these clowns have no clue what is already being paid or just lapping up the socialist talking point like one of Pavlov's dogs.

First we have to figure out what the objective is: help the little guy or get even with the rich? What people don't realize is that the two are mutually exclusive.

The analogy to this question is considering what to do with your neighbor's nice automobile: Do you want to ask your friend for a ride or pour sugar in his gas tank? A typical lib would pour sugar then sue the friend to ride in his rickshaw.
