Wealthy individuals move quickly to shift wealth to off-shore tax havens and bury it in private trusts, avoiding taxation and accountability every step of the way-which now is in the trillions. We must close off these escape routes and tax dodges.

Reduce the tax rate so there is no reason to dodge.

The rich are not opposed to paying their fair share of taxes . . . but the current tax laws are not fair so this is what they do to not be robbed by the federal government.

What, you don't use the roads, bridges etc. I didn't know they were reserved just for the rich.

Change to a FLAT tax system and close loopholes. That is the best way.

What laws have they broken? If they've transferred money legally, no laws have been broken.

No income tax. Tax wealth, whether in the US or not.

But the Rich want the road, bridges and Internet infrastructure that we all pay for. Shouldn't the affluent in our country pay a little more for folks to use and get to there businesses that help keep them rich? If they don't like it, I suggest having there Republican controlled Senate write new laws!

The wealthiest Americans already pay 40% of the tax burden in the country while the bottom pay almost nothing. But taxes shouldn't exist anyway so I'm not for measures that will steal even more money from people.
