not who they have been telling us
And yet, the most common mantra from the left is that "The rich don't pay their fair share"..
A philosophy steeped in ignorance.
Please define "income inequality" and explain why it's a problem. For instance, if a pro football player or actor makes millions per year, how is that bad for me?
If the middle class is robust and large then income inequality is not a problem.
But if the middle class becomes smaller and smaller, with most falling into an economic struggle and just a few moving upwardly, then we risk social revolution.
how about a social revolution that demands education, discipline, self reliance, work ethic. Wow, imagine people rising instead protesting for more government help, rules, regulations, stipulations...
Have you noticed that the middle class has shrunk largely because of the "good intentions" of people ostensibly trying to, among other things, keep the middle class from shrinking?
A healthy economy unfettered by over regulation and taxation both needs and creates a sizable middle class.
Government does not create a healthy economy, but it can sure create a crappy one.
