    The people who own the capital aren't contributing, because we have the most business-hostile government in 70 years.

    Government demanding banks make home loans to people it knew could not pay them back is "regulation."

    Ka-ching.

    They're going to sit on the sidelines until their own government stops assaulting them.

    The tax money taken from rich folks isn't going to the working classes.

    As much as a cluster**** Albany is, I dont see Cuomo singing it IF it gets to his desk.

    You do know that not all wealthy people get bailed out?
    Sweeping generalizations are horrid ways of forming policy.
    The rich people that didn't bailed out are struggling now and not as wealthy. The one's at the top with the most money, the one's that can't fail because they are too big and important, are now contributing about as much as a meth head on welfare and they are at the top.
