SHOCKER: Millionaires Flee the Country When More of Their Wealth is Confiscated Than They Are Allowed to Keep

PAPER: Two-thirds of millionaires left Britain to avoid 50% tax rate… drudge.tw/Rispjs

And yet US Liberals somehow think that US millionaires (let’s call ‘em the productive “makers”) won’t do the same. And will instead stand by and allow our corrupt government to steal their hard-earned wealth and redistribute it to those who have not earned it (let’s call ‘em the “takers” or “Obama voters”).
We call this “Going Galt.” A phrase Liberals should become very familiar with over the next 4 years as the economy completes its collapse and the true job producers in this country pack it in and disappear.
n the 2009-10 tax year, more than 16,000 people declared an annual income of more than £1 million to HM Revenue and Customs.
This number fell to just 6,000 after Gordon Brown introduced the new 50p top rate of income tax shortly before the last general election.
The figures have been seized upon by the Conservatives to claim that increasing the highest rate of tax actually led to a loss in revenues for the Government.
It is believed that rich Britons moved abroad or took steps to avoid paying the new levy by reducing their taxable incomes.
