    Nobody owes you a "Living Wage", that is socialist speak for "I want more money, but I don't really want to wor for it".

    You could CONFISCATE all of the money that the "Wealthy" own and you wouldn't solve any problems

    The "take" other peoples money is your only answer to everything.

    Now, you DO know it's their money, don't you?

    So you feel those of us that make less than $1 million a year aren't pulling our weight?

    How much more do you feel the middle class should pay in taxes to make up for the $91,000 those that make more than $1 million a year get in tax breaks?

    I am not talking about a living wage for full time work, I am not talking about a handout.

    Protesters are using more than just rhetoric to go after Scott Walker. M&I Bank was Walker's largest contributor, even surpassing the Koch Brothers in contributions. The Unions, along with their members, have more than one billion dollars on deposit with the bank. Guess what? The Unions, along with their membership, are getting ready to pull it all out, which would bankrupt the bank. Looks like it isn't just Governor Walker who is willing to use a slash and burn strategy. The Unions, and their membership also have other targets which they believe they can put out of business.

    But you have no problem with the upper class sponging off the support of middle class taxes?

    It is encouraging to see people fight back in the class war that has been waged in this country!

    No one is talking about $25/hr for McDonalds' workerss and no one is taking about nationalizing business. I was suggesting a living wage as an alternative to welfare. Keep going the welfare route if you choose.

    What??

    That doesn't even pass the silly test.

    If what you said were true, the top 0.27% would be getting over 70% of the tax benefit... it's just ridiculous.

    But thanks for the laugh.
