The rich have been sucking the economic lifeblood from the middle class for decades. Today, "We Are One" rallies are happening all over the country.
The nation’s greedy corporations and insatiable wealthy are fattening themselves on workers. There’s no trickle down. It’s the opposite; the rich have been sucking the economic lifeblood from the middle class for decades.
When reckless Wall Street banksters get taxpayer-funded bailouts, billionaires get tax breaks and gigantic corporations like GE and Bank of America pay absolutely no federal income taxes, they’re getting for free the very public services that enable them to make massive profits in this country – the courts, the roads, the trade regulators, the patent enforcement.
The middle class doesn’t get those big time special deals and loopholes. Workers pay their taxes. As a result, it’s workers footing the bill for the government services that enrich the rich. Greedy corporations, their CEOs and the right-wing politicians they buy with tens of millions in campaign cash are freeloaders.
It’s time workers stood up to the freeloaders. Join Monday’s We Are One rallies. These demonstrations across the country by religious groups, social justice organizations and labor unions will illustrate that the middle class is mad as hell and not going to take trickster economics anymore.
Excatly...what happens next? Mr. Moore is right, those folks are angry because someone else has the money they want. If money is so bad for people, why do they want it? Are they going to share and do more with their part of the money they want for free? Doubtful.
Without those businesses, those people that hire, invent and make stuff, where will any of these complainers go to work?
Well, you're partly right. I wouldn't say that the rich are sucking the lifeblood from the middle class anymore than the lazy wellfare class are sucking the blood out of the middle class. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THAT? At least, I can hope the rich will give back in the way of buying something, creating a job or two. I don't believe the rich should pay more because they found the way to get rich. You can to, if you want. Everyone has a responsibility including the rich but don't suck them dry because you want more money. PS....Im no where near rich. Im lucky just to be in the lowest reaches or middle class.
