Time for some tough loving. Stop living beyond your means it's ruining the country, literally killing us.
Save, Work Hard, be a good Family man, and that's it. No more Benzs for 23 year olds. No more 3 million dollar McMansions.
You're out of control and ruining this nation. At least the wealthy pay their fair share, they buy a big house they'll pay for it, because they have the money and are living responsibly. But, you know it's bad when the shoe shiner starts giving you stock advice. This middle class needs to be taken down quite a few notches.

Actually, the top 10% of earners pay 70%. It is a myth the wealthy avoid paying taxes through deductions. Deductions and credits only go so far, and may make things a little more fair, but they certainly don't get many out of paying taxes.
