Someone give me a bucket. I hate when make an offer they know they wont have to make good on. Like when someone asks you if you want a piece of cake or the last beer because they want to look good but they think you'll say no. I always say yes even if i dont want the damn cake. Im doing my bit to end virtue signaling. Let's do the same with Bill and have the government send him a tax bill for an extra billion.

Yes taxes on capital should be higher then taxes on labor. It amazes me we keep it opposite of that and that your middle and lower classes just go along with it.

How about you donate extra money to the government instead of screwing other people over?

Well he can always just pay more and refuse a refund. Also while he's busy giving away money I could use a few 55 gallon drums full of 100s

Ok so... I’m rich ya see... my family too for 10 generations. So now other people need to be more socially considerate of others. Just not me. I make the rules. I hate born again people AFTER they are of course taken care of.

Alternative headline: "Billionaire doesn't like that people think he shouldn't be paying less as a percentage of his income, in tax, than a homeless person." Corporatism/Socialism for the rich, needs to die. They didn't earn anything close to what they have, that money could be better used paying workers or reinvesting in the company. Billionaires are a drain on the economy and shouldn't exist.

Most likely he has all of his bunny hidden and Swiss banks in Batesville the Cayman Islands so he can complain about having to tax the rich. they all do that just to cover their butts. in the long run it’s us every day schlubs that have to pay it

Well Bill if you feel that you're not paying enough in taxes why don't you donate 20% to the federal government as an example. I mean Bill, it's not as if you're hoarding it in mason jars in your yard or a tax free foundation.... Oh
