Is there an amount of wealth that you believe is too much for any one person to own?
There’s not an amount of wealth that is too much for me to own. I don’t know about anyone else! 😃
Of course not, how ridiculous.
I do. I don't expect everyone to agree with my number.
They can't take it with them when they pass on.
Bill Gates recently said he would be ok with paying 20 billion in taxes, but if you start talking about taxing him 100 billion he would start counting to see how much he would have left.
No tax plan that has been proposed would tax him nearly 20 billion, much less 100 billion.
Not yo mention that even his nightmare scenario would still leave him with 6 billion dollars.

That's a good question.
Its no ones business how Gates or anyone else spends their money . do you lefties think Soros should spend his differently?
No, I thought it was a stupid thing to say. He is making the left position sound much more extreme than it actually is.
Fitz, yes. I'd ban Soros from buying politicians just like I would the Koch brothers. Politicians should answer to their contituents, not billionaire donors or special interests.
Anything over $100 million is ridiculous.
No. What qualifies me to determine what is "enough" for someone else? And vice versa. It's kind of an arrogant premise.
No, that's called socialism and is incompatible with American values.
When you get to around the $10-20 million range, in my opinion that's the point at which no normal person can possibly spend it all modestly in a lifetime. When you get to around $50 million, I would say that's when, if you play your cards correctly, your money can start making more money. And it's probably around $100-$200 million when I feel comfortable saying that no person can possibly earn that much. And around $1 billion is definitely WAY too much money for one person to own.
When a CEO is earning 300x the amount of an employee and the employee qualifies for public assistance while working full time, yes, that is too much wealth.
