The GOP can pretend to like the 99%
The 99% can pretend to vote GOP.

Id agree.

Up to any buisness that has taken corperate welfare from the state.


Any buissnes that has formed round or taken taxoayers money should be at the mercy of the taxpayer.


This income inequality is just another face of corporate welfare though they will never admit.

Just like the rest of social programs are corporate welfare.

Rob from the rich so the poor can go out, and buy more stuff.

Same thing the evil rich are demagogued for just income 'inequality' has a slighter hipper wrap, and is nothing more than greed, and materialism.

EXACTLY what rich people are decried for.

Why, they have it so rough! Did you know that only 200 rich people have as much wealth as 3,000,000,000 of the rest of us?


I don't care.


You don't care?!

Well sir, that makes you a heartless scumbag in my book.

People like you don't deserve wealth.

Seriously ?

How can a minority block ANYTHING ?

Answer THEY CAN'T.



That's a bald faced lie and you know it.

Just wait, next week you'll be ranting on and on when one man, (a minority in almost any room) rightfully vetoes the hell out of your precious Keystone pipeline legislation.



Bold face lie eh ?




The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. A


en.wikipedia.org...

110th congress.

Democratic MAJORITIES.

Both House, and Senate.

Thanks for the compliment.

For the record ?

Anyone supports robbing from the evil rich, and give to the poor, and outsourcing that responsibity to the state.

Doesn't mean they care about their fellow man.

There's no use arguing with heartless greedy scumbags who think it's ok to hoard wealth while people starve. The only thing to do is take their wealth.

With great wealth comes gr8 responsibility. The hyper rich scum who neglect their responsibilities don't deserve the wealth. Simple as that.

The level of ignorance you continually display here on ATS, coupled with the outright lies you propagate, is just mind-boggling.

If you really believe the garbage you profess, I pity you.

This is a great editorial, suddenly as we have major elections approaching several high-profile Republicans are talking about income inequality that Democrats have recognized as an important issue for years. Somehow though, the republicans are trying to blame it on Obama (like everything else). How they can be so hypocritical is beyond me when for years they've been saying that inequality is good or not a problem (because it makes them rich).

seattletimes.com...


For me, the new information content of this article was pretty high, thanks.

The Republicans are the Democrats of 20 or 30 years ago.

The Democrats are Democratic Socialists.

Same Old Same Old since the first progressives passed the first government subsidy. Buying votes, what a concept.

The subsidy this time is the minimum wage.

The result of which is that the price of everything will go up, and savings will lose even more value, if they have any remaining now.

Fixed income people will suffer a cut in buying power until the congress raises their benefits.

After a while, everything will be proportionately the same as before the minimum wage hike, except for the economic distortion in the mean time.

Voters who don't understand economics will vote themselves into slavery, or worse.

Maybe being poor is more "greedy" than being rich.

A poor person requires other people's money to support them.

A poor person never gave anybody a job.

A poor person enjoys the benefits of the government having contributed little if anything in taxes.

A poor person doesn't contribute to charitable causes; they take from them.

A poor person never has become more successful by blaming the rich.

The main problem that needs solution:

Why are there not an equal amount of well paying jobs as there are people?

The answer is due to the nature of the extreme poles; 'freedom' and 'order'.

Why can't I work for awhile, save enough money to buy a house and invest for income, and retire as early as possible?

I wouldn't need a job then.

People = jobs is a trap.

A better question is, why aren't people homicidal over the 1000% of income that has been stolen by wars and depressions through government sponsored inflation and mercenary lawmaking?

In the late 1800's the price of everything was falling, which meant that money under the mattress was growing in buying power, no bank needed.

Even though prices were falling, the economies were growing. Businesses reinvested their profits, again, no bank needed.

We should try for a return to an economy like that.

A poor person doesn't give other people jobs, pays no taxes to contribute to society, and doesn't contribute to charitable causes but instead takes from them.

What's heartless and ignorant is telling a poor person to blame somebody else for their poverty.

Every single one of these threads on rich people are evil, and income inequality crap reminds me of Frankenstein.



Guess they don't realize there is scant difference between this clip, and what they are supporting.

Meh, poor people are the majority, relatively speaking... the ones here talking in defense of "rich" people are not "rich," comparatively to the 1%-ers, anyway... but either way, one side are afraid some nebulous, undeserving "other" is going to rob them and make them, in result, like they imagine the poor to be.

People who have stuff and comfort and security want their stuff and security... people scrabbling for food and shelter every moment of their days would kill for a small sliver of such security, never mind comfort.

And they just might. That's the real issue... and to be fair, the Dems are mostly at the beck of the economic choke-holds of society, lately, though the Repubs have been playing that disingenuous game longer and are almost beyond redemption at this point.

Either way, equatable pay and taxation to lessen income inequality is in order to reinvigorate our society... and not to the degree most with some scraps are afraid of... but it's disgusting, in general, how we treat our fellows and how some intentionally forget what economic suffering really means.

No human being "deserves" that fear and despair... and fear and despair turns violent... it's pretty simple at the core of the issue... but no upper middle class asshat will end up wearing a barrel... they just won't lose their heads one fine day.

It's also a lot of self-projecting and self-hatred.

Accusing the "rich" of being evil and wanting to steal money when that accusation is rooted in their own jealously and envy. Then they justify taking other people's money for themselves because somehow they've declared that the "rich" don't deserve it but they do deserve it.

They are building their own prison of poverty with each condemnation of the wealthy.

Yeah, the pitchforks and torches video is the perfect metaphor. Except now the "rich" can just move somewhere to get away, like all the wealthy who are leaving California and it's 10%+ income tax.

No one believes that BS anymore - no even most Republicans

That's like saying the payroll accountant controls the economy since they issue payroll checks.

Good companies know their customers are the boss - they are the ones who create the jobs. Owners are just following the "orders" of their customers.

And most of these consumers (i.e. job creators) are poor and middle class.

So yes, poor do provide jobs by supplying companies with money. (and no it's not the Banks, they just take care of timing of revenue and expenses). Take Dentists for example, their income has decreased even though their tax has been reduced.

The hurt of the poor and the middle class is starting to flow up to the very rich; hence, the change in policy.
