slow down the process. neil: really? really? we take advice from that guy? if you go by 1,000 people on the street so in addition to the wealthy the more you have the of more you pay i suspect this does figure if they don't cut spending here then just bring getut of the rich? that is assuming the rich don't up and go because that is exactly what is happening in france were the top rate hits 75 percent they really did hit the road. that when we take our financial cues from the french we are scrambled. [laughter]
you don't appreciate it to that is your problem. steve forbes? finigan goes to show the problem if you look at europe subpar growth with a very high tax rates where to get that money from? people who created to have capital to invest and they don't get economic growth. looked at the world's richest people two-thirds are so starters you see the same thing in the united states we have more cap and creation of the we do our best to visit but with capital and creation people are not punished to try to get ahead goodhings are getting done. neil: it is amazing how creative people can be but not cut the spending but then to add insult to injury
it is double jeopardy. >> it is like taking a vice how to play bessel bullwhacker -- basketball from spike lee a. and not michael jordan.

decade -- the texts -- the tax code for decades but part of that it is looking out the various things that are out there now they look at ways to tax the perks that he is sitting on the expensive home. we could tax that. this is the spending their requires these taxes? >> there was a restaurant near the office too much was is never enough. look at southern iraq. why is greece just showing signs of life with 27 percent unemployment? austerity hits the private sector not the public sector so it escapes and it gets
crushed and then with neighboring belgium nobody thought of that as a tax haven. [laughter] >> i remember when the united states used to be a tax haven. >> i don't think this comes to fruition but i have heard from some of white house with the latest budget numbers with the deficit under half a trillion dollars but it is still money added to the dead and half a trillion is still not that great but they say it is aside what they have been doing with taxing and little control of spending is working senate the ada to celebrate half trillion dollars deficit is news to be but the get the
presidency although almost all have been designed to reduce and cut many quality do you know, what has happened? the people of the stock market at the top have gotten richer what we have seen is the of middle-class hurt the most. neil: if not by any other means they will raise up that will take the top tax rate to crunch it down. >> but my point is they have been doing those things making inequality worse. with states like they york has more in come the quality than any other state with that high tax rate rate, minimum-wage, welfare benefits all the things that should create the workers' paradise if it has not worked. >> who do want to be in charge of capital? bill gates or steve jobs over nancy pelosi or harry
reid? neil: but bill gates says the rich can afford to pay more but that is a difference between that and $250,000. neil: so but the capital be created. >> you get the reduction of a standard of living people had so much more today with he and health and health care that is what you should look at. >> taking our cues from the french. stick with the food. another sneaky thing? said tip this built-in but they don't tell you that.

especially if you take certain medicine tell your doctors about all medicines you take. pradaxa side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. if you or someone you love has afib not caused by a heart valve problem... ...ask your doctor about reducing the risk of stroke with pradaxa.

let me be brief. one lucky gambler or maybe one very clever gambler. to hear the board got a casino in atlantic city tell what he did not win nine and a half million dollars displaying cards he was exploiting apparently unknown defect in those cards. here to judge whether the casino has a case. as you said, they do. randy says they don't. why do they? this. >> this is going to come down to whether or not the courts determine this was illegal. essentially the casinos had a policy, and he brought that policy. they have rules in place. new jersey gambling commission has rules, and he violated them. it was exhorting. he was not supposed to be doing this damning technique called edge sword angry was looking at the cards, counting the cards and then asking the casino to deal the cards in a certain way so that he could keep track of the cards in the order that there were coming out in. that's illegal. neil: so he didn't -- he did not
do anything. >> right. he took advantage of the situation, but the question is going to be whether or not taking it into the situation violates the policy of the casino and a policy of the gambling commission. neil: what do you think? >> ladies and gentlemen of the jury, who marked these cards? did fill idea? no. to cause the cars to be tampered with? did fill idea? no. why is the manufacturer being sued? because it was the manufacturer screwed up. you know something, the same way the casinos, alcohol and women and the house always wins, all he did was nothing more than back, walking some of his house and seeing cocaine on the table and not needing a warrant. he could see with his eyes that there was an issue. he took advantage of it. that is fault. neil: what did he do? he knew that there was something a regular. >> apparently the manufacturer when the back of the cards are created they're supposed to be a
pattern that is supposed to be the same throughout so you can't tell the difference between a four, five, nine. with talk right you are betting on who will be close to nine. apparently with certain car telf you will, was different. he was able to pick up on that. it means i'm marking the cards, making it so i can tell what started is. he didn't do it. th manufacturer did. neil: what do you make of that, he did nothing more than take advantage of the situation that was provided via the casino for him. he did mark anything, cat anything. >> i agreed to get into the situation, but i think it goes further than that. it's much like a ballplayer taking steroids. it's taking advantage. neil: wait a minute he is smart enough to say, wait a minute. there is something here that i can observe and ticket manager jeff. >> but it breaks the rules is the issue.
