What is to be "rich" ?

François Hollande, First Secretary of the Socialist Party since 1997, is the Ségolène Royal’s partner. During a televised debate with Michèle Alliot-Marie (current Defense Minister and supporter of Nicolas Sarkozy), he declared in June 2006 : “I do not love the rich, I do not love the rich, - yes, that is the right word”.

This statement gave him a lot of problems when the couple had to admit that they paid “the wealth tax (impôt sur la fortune or ISF), France happens to be one of the few countries that have kept this tax which many countries consider to be unfair, as it strikes more and more the middle class. The threshold for the wealth tax is € 750,000 euros and it includes the taxpayers’ home if they own it.

But... what is to be “rich”? François Hollande declared in January 2007 that France has to tax even more, those who earn more than 4000 euros net per month.This began a fight even at the center of his own political family.

" je n'aime pas les riches " Ben il doit pas s'aimer alors , parcque quand on vois ce qu'ils touche a eux deux par mois ... si c'est etre riche avec 4000 euros par mois , alors eux ce sont des ultra riches.

Vraiment un discour pour essayer d'avoir le plus de personne qui vote pour segolene. normal puisque 90% des personnes qui travaille gagne moin de 4000 euros. donc forcement il veux attiré tous ces gens la
