"The Tom Perkins system is: You don't get to vote unless you pay a dollar of taxes," Perkins said.Just like a corporation! Because the idea behind government is that you should get a cut of the proceeds in proportion to your investment! No, wait, in the public sphere that's known as "corruption". My bad.
"But what I really think is, it should be like a corporation. You pay a million dollars in taxes, you get a million votes. How's that?"
Also, if I were more of a mathematician, I'd be (even more) offended by this too:
Pressed for examples of how the rich were being demonized, Perkins said that he feared higher taxes.Yeah, not really sure that's how percentages work.
"The fear is wealth tax, higher taxes, higher death taxes -- just more taxes until there is no more 1%. And that that will creep down to the 5% and then the 10%," he said.
