Libtards are always going on about how European countries provide all their people with health care, and other benefits that this nasty, cruel country we live in won't do and that we should be more like them. Yeah, well, maybe not:
More than 8,000 French households' tax bills topped 100 percent of their income last year, the business newspaper Les Echos reported on Saturday, citing Finance Ministry data.The entire article is astounding, and really short, so if I posted all the quotes from the article that I thought were really interesting, the whole thing would be up here and that's copyright infringement, so follow the link. Needless to say, I'm pretty sure that we don't need to follow the lead of our European cousins on this shit. Barry, take note.
The newspaper said that the exceptionally high level of taxation was due to a one-off levy last year on 2011 incomes for households with assets of more than 1.3 million euros ($1.67 million).
