Same applies to the rich if they paid their fair share.

2. True. I think that is the next fight. Time to reduce the corporate tax rate to 25% but take

out some loopholes while doing spending cuts.

4. Most thinking people agree that the "system" is rigged.

What most of them don't realize - or don't acknowledge - is that any dumbass can win when they rig the system.

Which means that the Top 1% - the well-to-do, the über-wealthy, the richest fucking people in the history of humanity - aren't any better, or smarter, or luckier, or more blessed by God, or more deserving of govt help, than the average schmuck who's been out of work for the last year-and-a-half & whose house is being foreclosed out from under them.

5. Sign WH Petition to Do Something About It!

Oil and gas companies, which are raking in record profits, certainly don't need $4 billion a year in subsidies, and even the oil company CEOs admit they don't need it!     
     
Why are cuts to Social Security and Medicare even being discussed while literally billions in corporate welfare are constantly spilling out of the Treasury?
