300,000 French Expected to Leave France

Reuters reports that 300,000 French millionaires will immediately begin to leave France in response to taxes being increased to seventy five percent of income in order to help close the budget deficit. The mass migration of millionaires is expected to begin as soon as countries outside of France agree to accept the political risk of increasing their own wealth inequality.

England's Prime Miinister David Cameron was quoted as saying "The short trip to England through the EuroTunnel justifies its considerable expense and investment, and makes England the logical place to resettle these political refugees."

Making his own bid, Spain's Prime Minister said that "Spaniards are looking forward to the arrival of job creators and the opportunity to remain in poverty while serving the new arrivals wine and cheese and maintaining their lawns and gardens.

Meanwhile in the United States, House Speaker John Boehner credited strong Republican opposition to paying bills through tax collections. "By not taking the easy way out, and paying for Government services through collecting enough taxes, the American working man will now begin to see the benefits of his suffering reduced pensions and lowered wages as Government cutbacks and layoffs have increased their leisure time, and as they have pulled money out of their rainy day savings in order to enjoy this period of high unemployment".

Best wishes,

I am surprised to see you post this, as I am sure you have said before that increasing taxes will not make wealth leave the country.

I would like to blame my 3 hours of sleep, but instead should probably blame my own stupidity.

SkepticalOx is correct, this was posted in jest. Sometimes it is fun to point out an opportunity for gullible fools to test their ideas, in this case the idea that rich people will leave the country if you tax them so little (75% of income) that they are still the rich people.

Best wishes,
