Amy Goodman: US Should Have ‘Progressive Tax’ ‘That Taxes People According to Their Ability’


“Democracy Now!” Host and Executive Producer Amy Goodman argued for “a progressive tax in this country that taxes people according to their ability” on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

Goodman said, “It — we need a progressive tax in this country that taxes people according to their ability. Wealthier people make much more use of the resources of this country, and if poorer people had more money, they would put that money back into the economy. We see what happens with wealthier people. They take their money, in some cases, they put them in offshore havens. … We have to change this sucking sound that goes from the wealthy people — the poorest to the wealthy.”
