Or as Jesus said Heal the sick, feed the hungry and care for the weakest among us.
I won't even bother pointing out the #ing irony of your Cross Avatar, references to Jesus and your apparent hatred of anyone poorer then you are. I am just going to assume you think everyone beneath you is too lazy or too stupid to be rich.
A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. ..
Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you.
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. And you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.
Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
The average worker is making less in a year then they did 40 years ago but the cost of everything else has exploded exponentially.

Are people really arguing over fiat currency and demagoguery of corporations that are nothing, but political machinations rooted in the same political ideology of the current Potus?
Yeah it is really going to be a long 1200 days.

So what your saying, basically, is that the rich have only become greedy recently and that before Obama was in power they were all extremely generous and wanted to share their wealth?
In 1999, Democrats led by President Bill Clinton and Republicans led by Sen. Phil Gramm joined forces to repeal Glass-Steagall at the behest of the big banks. What happened over the next eight years was an almost exact replay of the Roaring Twenties. Once again, banks originated fraudulent loans and once again they sold them to their customers in the form of securities. The bubble peaked in 2007 and collapsed in 2008. The hard-earned knowledge of 1933 had been lost in the arrogance of 1999.
