Dear One Percent:

For the past 35 years or so, you have been partying like rock stars, while the rest of us saw our economic situation deteriorate year after year. To add insult to injury, you blame us! It's time for you to pay the piper. Now stop whining and pony up. That is all.

3. There is a difference between the 1% and those who worship the 1%

Another poster pointed out that 67% of the 1% now support raising taxes on their income bracket:

The set of people who earn in the upper 1% of income is much smaller and not wholly contained in the set of people who think politics should be guided by what favors that group. It's that latter group who are our political enemy.
