They decided to push even higher taxes on the wealthy, and - who would ever have guessed? - two-thirds of the millionaires in the country left.
Far from raising funds, it actually cost the UK £7 billion in lost tax revenue.
It is of course unrealistic to expect American Democrats to learn through simple observation; they are determined to do whatever it takes to ensure that all Americans are equally impoverished. It increasingly appears that the only reasonable course of action is to let them do their thing - and when the inevitable occurs, they will be unable (try as they might) to blame anybody else.
Personally, I'm tired of all of their "fairness and equality" crapola. Equality has never been, aside from inception (all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights), part of America. We have equality at the start; equality in outcome is not part of the deal. Democrats and other Leftists want to impose that, but it will never be so: as Orwell noted, such efforts at imposition always result in some being more equal than others. Democrats want to ensure that they're part of the former.
