François Hollande on Monday vowed to press on with his super-tax on the rich, despite a damning decision by Frances top court to throw it out as unconstitutional. But it is uncertain when a new version of the tax will be introduced and whether it will be watered down.
We will still ask more of those who have the most, said Hollande. He added that the exceptional tax on Frances wealthy would be adjusted without changing its objective, but did not provide details of any new proposal.
The tax remains overwhelmingly popular with the French public, 60% of whom approve of it. But the row over tax exile is raging after the actor Gérard Depardieu said he was moving abroad because taxes were too high.

At least France has a supreme court with more integrity than ours. How does Chief Justice Roberts live with himself nowadays?
it will now be expanded to couples making half a million each.
to spread the guilt of course, this is why they make YOU and thers fund abortions, perverted art and condoms for children. To spread the guilt of their evil ways on everyone.
“The tax remains overwhelmingly popular with the French public, 60% of whom approve of it.”
Well duh, just like it is here, the non-working morons think money grows on trees and the wealthy own the orchards. It always amazes me when Rasmussen posts as “a big revelation,” that all of the Obama giveaways are popular at the same percentage level here. In other news, the sun came up this morning.
” How does Chief Justice Roberts live with himself nowadays?”
Like a big pile of simmering piece of sh*t on a hot summer day
He could care less. He sleeps well at night. Washington DC is a place unto itself. They don't care about real American values or illegal immigration or the crappy economy outside of the DC region. All they care about is you sending them taxes to fund their recession proof party
Jay Carney is a fine example. He looked like a well scrubbed choir boy to me. Now he will tell any lie for Obama and spin it anyway that benefits Obama. All he cares about is what the people in the DC fishbowl think of him. He has no class, no conscience. He also sleeps well at night
Probably waking up every night wondering what the next threat to "release the photos" will be over.
