In an unadulterated burst of libertarian sentiment, finance commentator Peter Schiff told CNBC that his fellow Americans have no stinkin' right to his income.
Real Clear Politics reports
that the free market enthusiast and Ron Paul supporter
told the network, "I don't care what the majority voted to do - they don't have a right to steal my money just because they vote for it."
Confessing to being among the nation's top 2% of income earners, Schiff warned of what he believes to be the dire consequences of higher taxes on the wealthy, a plan the President is wont to push through
in discussions of the fiscal cliff.
"You know what the wealthy are going to do?" Schiff asked, rhetorically. "They're going to invest more abroad, they're not going to work as hard, they're not going to pay as much in taxes, and they're not going to employ as many people."
