Wealth Creators?

I was listening to the radio and as usual it seems the right wing rules the waves. The host was complaining about high taxes and advocated cuts for the rich. His arguement was that those with the high wages are the wealth creators. Now I am sure he makes good money, but is he creating wealth in his job? Doubtful. Without him our economy still functions. The same goes for movie stars, sports stars, lawyers and even, if you think about it doctors... Basically what he is saying is nonsense. The salary you command has nothing to do with your usefulness to society...

San Nakji for President!

I think you interpret it too literally and don't take into consideration that he speaks of high taxes and such.

I get the idea that he wants the goverment to increase taxes on just on the middle and poor class so that the rich can create more wealth.

So they create more wealth ... but who keeps that wealth? The bloody rich do. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer.

No, keep it as it is, and maybe tax the rich more and the poor less.

No I am with you, just pointing out that the rich are not necessarily the ones who make the wealth for others.
