Here’s the segment if you are interested.

    Saw this on The Daily Show and had to share it on FB. I'm of the opinion, pay down our debt by raising taxes on the wealthy.

      That's been tried before and it doesn't actually bring any more money in. Apparently majorly of the rich are smart with their money and can move it around even if it means leaving the country or moving the actually money in 'safe havenings' or they just stop working as hard (or go into early retirement) so they don't make as huge salaries because they can't keep that extra money they would of made.
