Mayor de Blasio calls for higher taxes on the wealthy but refuses to reveal exactly whom he would label as 'rich' — and seems unsure of what 'wealthy' actually means

Democrats have a reputation for loving the idea of raising taxes — especially taxes on the well-to-do. They promote class-warfare arguments calling for the government to "tax the rich" and to make the wealthy "pay their fair share."

Naturally, far-left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio fits into that stereotype.

This is the mayor who reminded his subjects in December that "our mission is to redistribute wealth," adding that "a lot of people bristle at that phrase, that is, in fact, the phrase we need to use."

He said something similar in August when he made a plea for "taxing the rich and redistributing their money even as the Big Apple reels from a coronavirus-induced budget crisis that's already caused well-heeled New Yorkers to head for the hills."
