Whoopi Goldberg Proposes Raising Taxes
On the Top 0.875% Instead of the Top 1%
So That She’ll Be Excluded
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Last Tuesday on ABC’s “The View”, the hosts discussed AOC’s “Tax the Rich” dress, and whether
the top 1% of Americans should pay more in taxes.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly did some math, and then announced that we should not raise taxes on the top 1%.
Instead, it should be the top 0.875%.
“You know what freaked me out about this?” Golberg asked rhetorically. “I've been trying to figure out -- because they
say the 1% -- you know how much the top 1% is considered? People who make about $421,000 a year make you part of the 1%.
For me this is outrageous. You know because--Listen, in America you're supposed to be able to come and turn yourself into
everything, you know?”
“Just know if you're earning over $523,000, this could be a problem. They don't know how much you do for your family. They
don't know if you're raising your grandkids....”
Goldberg suggested that instead we tax the top 0.875%, which are people making $523,732 or more per year.
“Those rich bastards making $523,732 per year, they should pay more taxes.”
“But not the people making $523,731. That much is OK.”
“The threshold should be the top 0.875%.”
“And next year, depending on how my investments go, we might have to raise that threshold a little higher.”
