Quoted from Luckydogg420:
The top 10 percent have NO IDEA how bad the bottom 45 percent have it. Pay people a good living wage and they will be more then happy to contribute their share of taxes.
Can’t take blood from a stone.
You are wrongly assuming that many in the top 10% didn’t grow up or start out in the bottom 45%. Class warfare has never accomplished anything useful. I just read an article about how the share of the worlds population in the middle-class has risen sharply over the last 50 years and is continuing to grow, mainly due to China and India adopting their own brand of free market, i.e. capitalist, principles.
