Plan to tax the rich won't work
The retired, middle class and above, monied citizens are moving to locations where life is much less expensive, where there are upscale, affordable, private hospitals, and they don't have to put up with U.S. Congressional monkey shines.
What does that leave? Only those that can't afford to leave and a flat or broken down economy for decades to come. We should admit the truth: Congress has screwed us all over with their spending and we are going to economic hell as a result.
Currently, 6.3 millions Americans live outside of the US, which makes them the 17th largest state. Think about doubling or tripling that and the impact on the economy.
