Also add to the fact like 95 percent of the federal budget goes to families making over 50K a year, and I would be willing to bet 95 percent of the laws benefit rich people most. And I would be willing to bet 95 percent of the oil,gas, wood on public lands goes to families making over 50K a year. Only like 1 kid of congress is in Iraq. Seems the poor get the shaft.
============================ Tz says:
How does 95% of the federal budget go to families making >$50k a year? The rich are the ones paying all the taxes. The reason why is because the poor don't have the money. It's simple math, really -- even if a rich guy pays only 10% of his "real" income as tax (it's low due to tax shelters, right-wing-conspiracy dealings in the Caymans, etc) that's still a LOT more than the blue-collar guy with a $30k a year job.
95% of the laws benefit rich people most? Now THAT'S an unfounded assertion. Where is your proof?
95% of the oil, gas wood on public lands goes to families making over $50k a year? I doubt it. Tons of non-rich people NEED the oil and gas and wood and they use it.
Regarding 1 kid of Congress in Iraq, I don't know if that's true or not but if it is I wouldn't be surprised. It would just be further validation that Congresspeople are the way we've always thought they are.
