    Are you trying to say that 90% of our economy is just fine? Trickle down must be working pretty good after all.

    The subject was waste in government spending. Do try to keep up.
    I'm not going to chase you while you run around with the goalpost in your arms.

All they care about is if you have the cash to purchase whatever it is you're there to buy.
    A dollar isnt a dollar. Consuming it vs investing it in capital have very different results.

    Most people who think they are "investing" aren't.

    IOW, most people that "invest", arent investing in capital, theyre investing in their 401 (k).

    They are investing in financial products, a.k.a. consumption of goods manufactured on Wall Street that typically/historically increase in value.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Buy a fish or buy stock in Omega Protein. The individual who is able to do the latter isn't consuming less fish in order to purchase more stock.

    Hah. You think investing means taking money away from the rich and giving it to the poor so they can spend it. Reminds me of Obama. For eight years he never spent one dime. Everything was "invested". Add $500,000 to the national debt? No, we are investing the money, not spending it.
