    LOL you pretend to be some savior of the poor. and some need saving but far too many have become addicted to government pandering

    YOu telling me what I need to do is a real riot. I have been all over the world and I have seen real poverty in the slums of Bogota or Nairobi.

    Tell me how any of them would have gotten rich without a healthy middle class to buy their products? You make too much of the 1%, we all admire them but they will always be there at the top of the heap. It's the 90% we need to be concerned about, they are the ones hurting. I bet most of those names you mentioned would agree.

    Good for you. You still don't have a clue about the realities of who is receiving government aid in this country. You have bought into a 30 second right-wing propaganda talking point and continue to cling to it refusing to look at reality...which is your prerogative, but it is still wrong and misguided.

    I think most on the right want people to keep what they earn.

    Or do two wrongs make a right in your book?
    Part of Governments job is to maintain the economy and keep it growing. That's why we have a Federal Reserve, and a bunch of regulations that are meant to prevent damage to the economy that would hurt us all. We have learned from history that left to its own devices capitalism is a rocky road filled with ups and downs. So people no longer lose their savings when the bank fails. It things like that that instill trust in your Govt. and keep the wheels rolling at the same time.
    The income distribution data shows that we are now about to hit one of those potholes and filling it a bit might cushion the ride enough so we will get through without too much damage. Sorry for the funky analogy but I was on a roll.....
