obvious to me would first to end all the tax loopholes the ultra rich have been taking advantage off ( that includes ridiculous prices for art pieces as a form of money laundering , getting paid with untaxed stocks and stock options, having transport/food&lodging bought/leased under corporate so as to avoid property taxes, personal expenses under an executive card so the business can punch it in as business expenses, multiple salaries&benefits from being on charity boards, well charity in name only like the Clintons, ...etc etc ) .
Even as logical and uncontroversial as this is, i don't see any proper political caucus try to lobby for such a bill. Don;t even need to get to the point of adjusting the tax rate. By making such a huge jump, nothing will get done . Which is EXACTLY what the ultra rich wants.
and i don;t read Ars anymore.
From their very strong anti-Russian stance to the point of deliberately leaving out information ( akin to what BBC does for instance) , to their Democratic leanings and their Trump-unfriendly messaging, combined with their focus on everyday news rather than detailed long-reads , there is not much incentive to go on that site anymore
plus they ban those question the posted narrative willy nilly
