Hey Mike. Don't apologize for being rich

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Americans, by in large, don't hate wealthy people. If you work hard, create a business or product and become rich, that's noble. It's American. Mike Bloomberg, via his companies, employee 20,000 people. That's a lot of jobs, insurance for families and economic stimulus. Mike has employed more people than anyone on stage. Mike donates millions to 32 charities that help a variety of causes. Mike has done more to take on the NRA, register voters and help elect Democrats in tight races than anyone on that stage. It's a valid debate to ask some of the candidates what they have done, accomplished or succeeded in. Several have done very well. Others are life long career politicians that have never produced, employed or paid somonenes insurance premium. Some have literally made millions sucking off the tax payer teet. Politics aside, most Americans give credit to hard work and success. Most think life long DC insiders are the problem. So, if they go after Mike's Bloombergs wealth, My guess is he will explain his life story and Americans won't hold it agianst him. As a party that has embraced inherited wealth as with the Kennedy's- earned wealth is equally as valid. There seems to be a creeping section of our party that simply hates wealthy people. Bashing rich folks is not a winning strategy.
