Response to unemployed because job was cut due to down sizing


you said:

See super sports figures who are making millions,

Yep, they do. And only for a few years. A lifetime of earnings in maybe 10 years. Most will have no residual. Would you suggest they get some taxes back in the 'out years'? Special case, limited to a few hundred people at most

see stars who have billions,

have versus earned. Don't confuse the two terms.

and read about CEOs who have gotten millions in severence pay

Again, government stepped in years ago to try and regulate CEO pay in the name of populism. It got worse. Average tenure of a CEO is 3 years, then they are done. Probably unemployed for the rest of their lives. All ask for the 'golden parachute'

yet they were the ones who broke the system.

A few cheated, true. Name them.

Let them repay the monies they made at ticket prices through the roof and taxes they avoided through scamming the government.

Not sure what you meant here. I don't go see pro sports. I used to be a Braves fan. Then they, greedy b1+ch35 most, went on strike. No more.

But if you took all the wealth (accumulated earning) from these folks, you could only run the governemnt for a few months. Then where would you propose to get more money? These folks are done, and drawing welfare. Socialism ends when you run out of Other Peoples Pu,,, er, um, Money.
