lol@ OP "The Rich" don't pay income taxes-they pay taxes on dividends. The whole premise of the OP is false and frankly a daydream. BTW, do you even realize that the national debt exceeds GDP by many times? You could steal all "The Rich"'s money and still not get anywhere. Plus, when the OP's idea is even floated publicly there will be an "Atlas Shrugged" moment.
