If being rich is so bad, why doesn't the rich give all there money and property to charity?
I can't wait to see Bill Gates running a cash register at Wal-Mart or selling computers at Best Buy...
The best part of the article was reason #10 where CPA Holthouse was quoted as saying "It's stunning how many people were scamming the system"; oh really? Now THAT statement was a crock. I'm not rich, but I don't know ANYONE who isn't trying to scam the system, mainly because government either scams them or lets someone else scam them. When the average person feels SCREWED by the government, believe me, they fight back as much as they can.
Oh, one other thing, have you noticed that for lots of transactions, cash is being used more and more? When people believe that even their shopping habits are being scrutinized by government agencies, they tend to use more cash. Ever notice how government AND the banks want you to use credit and debit cards and how a lot of places give you that look if you use cash? Especially for larger transactions.
