Nice article but a republican under similar circumstances would have done the same thing.

what's going to happen when we drive all of them away? considering the the top 10% pay 70+% of all taxes, won't be too good.

Not sure but I guarantee ya that me & many other Americans will have to continue working & sweating our bells off to continue paying our 24-33% in Federal Withheld Tax every week!

after the top 10% leave we will be the ones paying for what is missing, meaning our taxes will have to go up another 24-33% every week!

But Republicans don't campaign and protest that the wealthy don't pay their "fair share" of taxes.

Who is John Galt?

Exactly because the republicans don't want to rich to pay taxes.

maybe because they know they would leave, not create jobs, and it would destroy the middle class?

This is something that is was meant to happen. Taxes are just getting out of hand and when you have to pay millions in taxes, it makes you think about ways to save that money. I do not balme them for basiling out like that. They are just thinking about their future. Also, there is no way I would want to pay millions in taxes so that lawmakers can live ht ehigh life with all the money they make and the little work they do.

Even with taxbreaks these big businesses are not creating jobs. What would happen of these big business if all the consumers dissappear?

It will happen before Jesus returns if the working man has no money to support businesses and businesses start to go under.

If the lady lives in London and has citizenship from a country that taxes her less, why wouldn't she do this? Just more bashing for the sake of bashing. Hope you are all prepared to bash Romney for all of his maneuvers to avoid paying more taxes. Probably not.
