The more cars made should mean in 5-20 years more people will be able to buy some nice used cars that more can afford.
The rich have so many tax loopholes that the middle class pays more tax than they do...

That's what's great about capitalism. If you have enough money you can essentially rewrite tax laws via some healthy political contributions.

I would blame that on stupid or corrupt politicians.

Edit: but it does not mean to exonerate these wealthy a$$holes.

Perhaps there are instances where someone in the middle class pays more % than someone who is "rich" but certainly not in absolute dollars. Many wealthy individuals pay more in taxes each year than the total gross earnings of a middle class individual.

The biggest thing which determines tax is how and where the money is earned. Most middle class folks are W-2 employees which is probably the least beneficial tax structure unfortunately. Often times wealthy individuals earn their money via investments/capital gains, equity distributions, etc which are often times taxed at a more beneficial rate than ordinary income.

I think that is in term of percentage not in absolute dollars. There is a narrative that is going around being repeated by democrats like air head AOC that Buffet is paying less than his secretary.

For example, if Buffet has $1B in equity. Now the FED will print money and give him a capital gain of $500M, so his unrealized income is $500M but since he hasn't sold any shares (fcker too old to do anything on $500M anyway) so he is essentially paying 0% on $500M so in theory he is paying less than his secretary, which is fine in the capitalistic system. BUT the UNFAIR thing here is that the FED insures that fcker will never lose his $500M by keep printing money every year. Not only that, even if fcker will just sit on his couch doing nothing and probably make even an extra $500M next year with the help from the FED while his secretary is working her a$$ off pay check to pay check.

That's why you got Warren going around calling for a wealth tax (besides screaming out a bunch of lunatic stuffs) so she can tax Buffet capital gain even if he has not realized his gain. But it's a fundamentally wrong thing to do. It's like trying to fix a wrong (the FED) by another wrong (her own stupidity). And that's just stocks. People will have to sell other assets to pay her wealth tax such as real estate, bonds, gold, and a whole bunch of other stuffs. Can you imagine how the economic system will get screwed up that at the end of each year, you got a whole bunch of people selling a whole bunch of stuffs just to please Warren?

For example, let's say Bezos (another douche from Seattle) has a net worth of $100B or something in that neighborhood. But in reality he has no where close to that number. All of that I am sure from Amazon stocks. If he sells all his shares, he's lucky to get $30B out of it because the stock price is dynamic so the more he sells, the lower the price will be an so on. Now Warren thinks she can tax the entire $100B from Bezos since that is his theoretical net worth. So you can see the flaw here.

So you got another fcker, the FED, that is screwing up the entire system by artificially inflating not just stocks, but also real estate, and a whole bunch of other assets.

But anyway, these fckers whatever they do just stay out of my fcking bedroom.

Hey, I live in Seattle. Does that make me another "douche" from Seattle?

Settle down. How can you call Warren Buffet a f*cker? What bad things has Buffet done? Even he has called for higher taxes on people with his wealth. The system is flawed, Buffet isn't the bad guy. And for all the Fed money printing in your hypothetical situation where Buffet makes $500M... With inflation it's probably only like $450M, so don't be so tough on the old man.

Yes, I'm talking % of income, not actual dollars. Obviously, taxes hurt middle class vs these rich guys don't feel it.

A corrupt system with greedy people in charge not worried about the nation as a whole vs themselves is great? Oof.

Everyone always cries about these "loopholes" but the reality is that many of the super-rich donate massive amounts to charities to offset their tax burdens. Additionally, much of their wealth is not in the form of a cash paycheck, but rather tied to the equity of a company they're associated with (paper wealth). Many of them take very small salaries and are able to donate amounts that far exceed their income, offsetting their tax burden to the maximum allowable deduction (50% of AGI). Hence, an extremely low effective tax rate.

There are certain tax strategies, such as carry forward, that should legitimately make people angry. A certain individual has been using that one for decades.

Not all loopholes are created equal. One enriches society, the other... doesn't.

The only tax loop hole that I can think of when Buying a car is- registering it in a state with no sales tax or a work expense.

You could get a job like waiting tables where the majority of your income is tip based. While I was in college I delivered pizzas and while my hourly wage was $6/hr, I made more like $20/hour.

At the same time it blows my mind that in the almost 15 years since I graduated, minimum wage has increased in many states by by nearly $10/hr to $15/hr.

You got something in common with Bruce Willis who also waited on tables before he became a star in Moon Lighting playing opposite Cybill Sheperd. Well at least you guys made honest money :-)

Have you become a billionaire yet?
