Inheriting a huge trust fund is "earning" to you? You're saying we should measure Americans against the world's poor? I disagree with your opinion. You're worried about how you're going to pay for health care for your kids and pay for their education, and fix car, and a hundred other things the guy netting $10 million doesn't have to worry about. Baseless RW propaganda class warfare nonsense. Proved by the fact the economy was growing strongly in the early 1990s even before the internet started reaching mass markets. Conservatives said the exact same thing in the early 1990s with Clinton's tax increase. They were totally wrong. They said the Bush tax cuts would spur great economic growth and create jobs. They were totally wrong. And we have the same bull(*)(*)(*)(*) claims being made by the 1% apologists today. Your post is a case in point. Liberals were exactly right. After that huge tax increase, the economy kicked ass. After Bush's huge tax cuts the economy sucked. Sure I did. Public education has helped educate tens of millions who otherwise couldn't have gotten an education.
