The Rich Have Never Been Richer - Total 97 Trillion - Where's Ours I Ask

The top 10% of Americans hold 93% of the wealth. They could pay off our national debt completely, and never even miss the money.

Don't be fooled.

You can Google all you want.

Just let me know if you are tired of working harder, and harder for less, and less.

And let me know what you plan on doing about it.......

I am throwing in with Bernie, and his millions of supporters for starters.....

1. I've felt the looting was on that scale for some time. They keep telling us you could "take it all"

and it wouldn't make a dent when we talk about raising taxes on them. Of course they would want us to believe that. The one thing no one seems to talk about is that our tax dollars have accounted for much of that wealth. Many of those 10% are way in the black on our tax dollars. What goes into their pockets makes what poor people get a joke!

2. The poorer vote against their own interests

they somehow think some of Trumps wealth might magically rub off onto to them?
