I agree that it's a problem, but the solution is a greater degree of redistribution, not less redistribution. Lowering taxes on people who make over a million by $250,000 will not help any of the people we're talking about earn more money. And repealing with financial regulation won't help the bottom 50% in any way.
We need more money to invest in that bottom 50% so eventually the income tax rolls won't show a ridiculous inequality in wealth distribution.
You're either naive, dumb or blinded by your misguided ideology, or quite possibly a combination of all three.
Do you realize A great many of these people have no or never had any thought of ever looking for a job or moving up the social ladder. some of these people's family's have been sucking the system dry for 4-5 generation. WAKE UP!!!! BTW, What happened to the nearly 1 trillion dollars the Barack and Nancy stole in the "stimulus??? or the trillions in the community "re-investment" that gave the unqualified sub-prime loans (some to 125% LTV). The "poor" HAD houses, What happened??? I thought these programs were going to "elevated to poor"
