Stupid phone, can't seem to copy & paste. Anyway, the 4 to last paragraph addresses the imbalance.
RK, this is kind of a bogus argument below:
So Buzz, if/when YOU take 100% of the wealth the top 10% have, what would it solve?
Would it balance the budget?
Would it pay off the debt?
Would it pay to run the Federal Gov't?
If so, for how long??
My guess is, if you took 100% of most folk's wealth and tried to use it to pay off their debts, it wouldn't cover it.
I could liquidate most of my investments and pay off my mortgage, my truck, and my credit card. But I choose not to. I choose to pay it over time.
Maybe we should use our credit card a little less and get out of that debt!!!
I tried it, it really works!!!!
I have more than I owe, it feels really good.................
Evidently when HPL asks the same question it is legit to you and you have thoughts on it???
BTW---I am about to purchase one of the products you and I discussed sometime back.
I hear nothing but good stuff about it, and it is my favorite brand.
I will also say that I'm pretty sure that the OP was referring to the real takers (those on straight up welfare) when using the term leaches, even if some wanted to interpret it as all who receive government checks.
This is the answer...nothing else needs to be said. Only the mental midgets in the nation think constant spending will continue throughout their lives. The concept of not being able to squeeze blood from a turnip is over their heads. None are smarter than a 5th grader...they voted for the ice cream.
