Democrats seem to think that everything can be “free” for everyone.
All we have to do is tax the nation’s rich people to pay for everything, right? Wrong.
As Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus recently pointed out in an interview on FOX News, even if you tax all the rich people, it still won’t be enough.
Home Depot Co-Founder: Dems Can Tax Rich People Like Me But There’s Not Enough of Us to Fund Their Desires
Home Depot co-founder Bernard Marcus on Monday told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that Democrats want to tax rich people for all of their proposed social programs but, eventually, they’ll run out of people to tax.
“A lot of people are okay with taxing guys like you, as long as it’s not them,” Cavuto said.
Marcus had a blunt response.
“No, Neil, there aren’t enough people like me to pay for it,” the billionaire replied. “Let’s face it: if they took away all the money I have, of all the money of all the billionaires in America, and all the wealthy people, they still wouldn’t have enough money to pay for all the that they want to do. It’s insanity.”
“This is called not being able to add one and one,” Marcus explained. “They come up with seven while everyone else comes up with two. I don’t know how they justify what they talk about.”

What is it about this that the left just doesn’t understand?
Shoot, there are not enough rich folks to fund the monstrous government if the IRS confiscated all of it today. #ConventionofStates

With Democrat math skills being what they are this is not a strong argument, because they don't understand the mathematical principles he's talking about.

Maybe we need to tax rich people to fund more remedial math programs for liberals.
