    It's labor-party rhetoric, it's not real, I'm sorry.

    How is the pie available for everyone else when a minority controls the majority of the pie?

    You are making broad assumptions.

    I am in Sales, if I want to "earn" more I can work harder and SELL more....again...a VERY simple concept.

    Unemployment is 4.7 in my State.....and it isn't a Lib State

    So? Why is increasing their own pies while creating jobs for others a bad thing? You expect him to hire people for the hec of it? It might surprise you, but people go into business to make money, and there is no limit to how much they should be allowed to make before they quit. When they aren't making money, they go out of business and people lose their jobs.

    Large corporations make up bout 20% of the labor market so what about the other 80%. Lot easier to focus on those evil large corporations and ignore the other 80% or the fact that even those large corporations employ people and pay shareholders. How do you expect dividends to be paid to shareholders many who supplement their SS with dividend checks from those evil companies?

    As for Walker he is attacking public unions and rightly so. There is no place in this country for public unions negotiating with politicians and then funding campaigns of those politicians. You are worried about corrupt corporations, how about corrupt public unions?

    A growing economy grows the size of the pie and Obama doesn't understand that.

    What the Union is doing is an attack on taxpayers who don't belong to Unions.

    Middle class - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    In February 2009, The Economist announced that over half the world's population now belongs to the middle class, as a result of rapid growth in emerging countries.

    How do people in reality actually improve poverty? With free'er markets and free trade. Not with bankrupt writings of a failed labor movement that crippled billions of people for generations.

    The point at which the poor start entering the middle class by the millions is the time when poor countries get the maximum benefit from cheap labour through international trade, before they price themselves out of world markets for cheap goods

    That's right. Cheap labor and the free trade of it raises more people out of poverty than any other practical force known to mankind. But you oppose it?

    I never said that increasing their own pies while creating jobs for others a bad thing, I said that the main beneficiaries of the increase in the pie are those who made the pie in the first place, thus the thought that the increase in pie benefits everyone isn't really true.
