    Why do people make a distinction between "the wealthy" and "the working people". If you're wealthy, you're most likely also working.

    Very true, however don't expect arguments born of jealous, irrational rage to be coherent.

    It's a distinction only made by socialists and communists.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Not true. I am neither and I make that distinction. Actually it is a distinction that can be made by anyone studying income, class and social divisions in any society. If you study sociology, such terms are central to that social science.

    You object to the truth?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well, that showed me. But, I insist that what I said is true. I've given you links. I've listened to your side demonize workers and teachers for sometime now. So, I think the support is largely on my side. Perhaps I could say you would know valid support if it bit you in the arse?

    Why do you think that is?

    Working class/working people means people who are employed for wages. They rely on employment.
