Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
How much money someone makes is their personal business. I think "at a certain point the government has spent top much money." Would Obama ever admit that he is too rich and makes too much? Nope. But will he say that people earning 200k+ make too much? He already has said that and has promised to take more of their cash because they make too much. He paints the rich as evil people, yet he fits in the same income bracket (actually he surpasses it). The problem is that our senators are too wealthy, which makes them less able to understand the needs of the average income person. The have been removed from reality and live on some throne that dictates that the rich are evil (except for them, they are exempt).
i accept Obama's position as an expressed opposition to plutonomy
certainly citigroup recognizes that the rich drive the economy. is that what the average American believes is appropriate, that we should have the best government money can buy? seems Obama does not subscribe to that either:

Coming from someone who inherited wealth and doesn't have to worry about a job? That's just outrageous. I think you've completely lost your perspective on what the average individual is striving for on a daily basis.
I'll trade you my job for your money, since money's not important...how about that?
Sure everyone wants to not have to work and to live in a safe, clean area with good access to spend their liesure time. It takes a lot of effort for most people though. Even if people work 9-5, they are working a lot less than they would have 300 years ago, and they have a lot more liesure time, live longer, etc. Click on your power, your lights, your stove, your TV, your phone, your AC, your shower....yeah, those all came from effort (money).
