    Hyperbole. Major hyperbole.

I look back and wonder what happened and IMO it was the evolution of the tech age, take Microsoft for an example, it has created more wealth (millionaires) for more individuals than any company in the world. Now add on Apple, Oracle, E-Bay, Amazon, Dell, Sun Micro, and the like. Then add the Internet, GPS, Cell phones, and the like. And you end up with trillions in the hands of tech engineers and entrepreneurs leading the way changing how the world works. The tech industry has had an explosion in the last 40 yrs and it has changed our lives. Take this forum as an example. This wealth is not blue collar wealth, the Tech industry is not a steel mill or an auto assembly line. It is high tech stuff that is driven by some very smart engineers and forward thinking people. Just saying.
    Well, people made all the hardware that the engineers designed, just like during the manufacturing high water mark of American dominance. I would argue that the shift to cheaper overseas manufacturing allowed them to keep more profits, thus enriching themselves to the detriment of the American middle class. Bottom line is, this wealth needs to be more evenly distributed, as those in the upperclasses are simply holding on to too much wealth. Global markets prove it. You can't have a fabulously rich upper class and everyone else eating poop. The global economy won't take it.

    If he want's everyone to pay their "fair share" then start with those that currently pay no federal income tax. According to AP fact check, this mindless claim is laughable.

    Fact check: The wealthy already pay more taxes

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Paying more doesn't mean it isn't fair. Frankly, those who benefit more should pay more. And wealthy do benefit more.
