And they would, and actual rich people do...but if you just keep getting richer, especially once you're in the horsefeathering BILLIONS, so much of that is nothing more than just hoarding wealth. Like, you're not even getting to keep it in a Scrooge McDuck setup to swim in...it's just piling up in the ether, faster than you can spend it. And yet people will seemingly fight to the damn death for the rarified uber-rich to be able to do that without being taxed what will ultimately amount to little more than a small dent in how obscenely wealthy they are. I really don't get it. Like, even from the standpoint of, "I KNOW I WILL BE RICH," the idea of being incensed that someone would have something, like, $5 billion instead of $10 billion (which is an extreme example nowhere near how much these goons would pay in taxes) because of taxation is complete broken brain nonsense.
The numbers so large people can’t comprehend. Even if a person makes $100,000/year, the amount of wealth a billionaire has is impossible to wrap your brain around. I think Bezos makes over $100,000/minute, over 200,000,000,day.
