A Trillion Dollars
By Ken Leland


March 17, 2009

A Trillion Dollars is a Million Million Dollars.Imagine all the wealth of a million Millionaires confiscated by the government and handed out by Congress to spend however they want.

Are there a million Millionaires in the United States? If so, think about the impact that a total confiscation of all their wealth would have on the economy of this nation of ours, the businesses they represent and the support businesses with the jobs they represent as well as all the numerous other state, County (or Borough), and City taxes they provide. It doesn't even take into consideration the impact on their own families. In effect that is what our Congress has done to our children and grandchildren by killing incentive to grow a business. Think about it!
