Germany’s Left Party Wants 100% Tax on Income Over $680,000. Looks like the old East Germans are trying to turn the country back into a steaming pile of crap like the good old days after WW2.

The last time Germany was forced to pick up the tab, things did’nt really work out too well.

I would just refuse to accept any raise that would put me over that limit.
No income over the threshold, no 100% tax.
Why would anyone work when they would receive no benefit?

According to my Lady, these guys are the Ron Paul party of Germany.
So, no chance of this happening.

I wonder how much productivity would be lost by Germans shutting down once they’ve made $680,000? Far leftists think everyone loves the government as much as they do.

How about 110% on income over $750K. Now there is a good idea leftys. Better yet, if the govt wants to raise tons of money, how about a 10% tax on bribe money that politicians collect and salt away in foreign bank accounts.

…it’s Johnny Rotten of P.I.L.(Public Image Limited) & the ex frontman of the Sex Pistols talking taxes in America & the UK, & about Benny Hill. This was on Opie & Anthony on Sirius/XM, & I will warn about language.
