Clothing designer Peter Opie, of Canary Wharf Clothier, made about $2 million this year — and would see his tax bill spike by a staggering $100,000.
“The system is nuts here — it’s madness personified!” he said
“We were impacted massively by the hurricane — and now there is this,” said Opie. “You work your butt off and you end up with next to nothing.”
That's pretty freaking demented to think you have "next to nothing" when you "earn" about $2 million a year.
High income "earners," whether they got their money through wages or salaries or investments, have no right to complain when the system heavily benefits them any way you cut it.
