Coffee achievers

By all accounts, whereby I mean, his own, Bill O'Reilly has achieved a lot.  But all of that now is in danger.  Behold:

O'REILLY: Here's the unintended consequence of Mr. Obama's revenue enhancing plan, and I must tell you, I want the feds to get more revenue. I don't want to starve them, as some people do. We need a robust military, a good transportation system and protections all over the place. But if you tax achievement, some of the achievers are going to pack it in.

For the uninitiated, he's threatening to "go Galt," which means he'll take his ball and go home.  We won't have the benefit of his genius anymore.

  1. If O' Rielly has enough money to where he can just take his money and live out his life without continuing to work then he is currently displacing a worker. If he left it is not like Fox news would go away and they would need to fill his timeslot with something, likely another anchor who is currently unable to be heard because O' Rielly is taking up the space. So if the increase in tax pushes him out of the work force then the increase created a job and lowered the unemployment rate. So his wanting to go away is actually a reason to raise the tax because it helps the economy.
