Have any wealthy people made a public statement they will be happy with a 5.4% tax
Just curious if any wealthy people like atheletes, actors, actresses, mucisians, etc have come straight out and said publicly they have no problem paying a 5.4% tax on their earnings to fund health care. If somebody gets 20,000,000 for a movie or sports season, do you think they are going to gleefully pay 1,000,000 to fund health care reform or do you think many will try to shelter it somehow?

Probably going to be a lucrative time to be a creative accountant for the rich.
Uh oh! some of their friends could be hurt.

1. Maybe we could exempt the athletes and movie stars
and just hit the CEOs and Investment Bankers.
How appropriate. Note the user name
