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.
