Probably on board one of the Seattle ferries,  drunk and incapacitated in one of the storage holds after a long night of partying.  Wink

I think we need to go on a recruiting drive for our region. But how to do it?

Do we still have an income tax of 50% for people making $50,000,000+ a year?

48.5 actually.

Edit: I signed all of the above bills into law with the exception of the Handgun Phase Out Bill, which failed to gain enough votes to pass, in case anyone wanted to know.

Cool. BTW I have a new bill to pass.


Quote
Sane High Income Tax Act


1.)  The regional income tax for pepole making $50,000,000 or more is now lowered from 48.5% to 20%




I know this would be a big change, but with the current plan people making $50 mil.+ would have to pay 108.5%+ of their income towards taxes of some kind if you add it to the national income tax rate (60+48.5=108.5  lol).   Extreamely wealthy Atlasians can't legally reside here with these rates, thus their tax dollars go elsewhere.  My proposed tax rate would make it possible for these people to live in the region, and therefore assure a large bump in regional revenue.  One last thing, a 20% income tax rate is pretty high for regional standards anyhow.  Tongue



Please don't kill me, fellow progressives.  Sad

It's fine. Besides I am generally supportive of this legislation, but I would want to see what the others have to say.

Not that I am necessarily opposed to a maximum income cap (which the 45.5% rate effectively creates), but it is quite possible that a bracket of 20% on incomes exceeding $50 million would be lower than brackets beneath it.  I am unable to find anything in the Pacific law code which would suggest what the next tax rate is, however, so perhaps the best solution would be to abolish present rates and start from scratch.

The activity spark in this region created by Governor Jackson (Ebowed gets some credit too Wink )is exciting and impressive.

Witnessing success by new JCP Governors will hopefully serve as an asset in my bid for the same office.

That being said, I will have some different policy priorities in the unique Northeast Region.

Good luck Governor Jackson and keep up the good work.
