Here's a great idea. Tax the bastards

I'm in Brooklyn, where it's snowing.

But I was cheered up by seeing that Congress here has passed a bill taxing the bonuses of the thieves in firms that were bailed out by 90%.

Why not in the U.K.?

And why only 90%? At one point in Sweden they were taxing people by more than 100%. Why can't these wretches be made to disgorge the money they stole before that?
