    If one is incompetent why wouldn't you blame him? The economic results today are a reflection of that incompetence yet you are willing to give him a pass, why?

    It is a negligent question as i was born after 1981-82. People are worse off today; we can just look at record foreclosures and continued downward trend in housing prices (peoples largest investment).

    Many homeowners already are at the financial edge:
    43% of American households spend more than they earn each year.
    – Homeownership Preservation Foundation data of 60,000 homeowners

    52% of employees live paycheck to paycheck.
    – The MetLife Study of Employee Benefit Trends: Findings from the 2003 National Survey of Employers and Employees, November 2003.

    Nearly 42% of all American households do not have enough in liquid financial assets to support themselves for at least three months.
    46% of American households have less than $5,000 in liquid assets, including IRAs.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
