I agree the rich need to spend in order for us make a living its economics 101, but my reservation isnt against the rich, its against the idea that the poor dont deserve breaks. Our system is lopsided and doesnt promote equal distribution atleast not like it was originally intended..while some minority of government trys to bring some form of equilibrium by promoting tax breaks for low income households, the other major form of government takes care of only the rich investors. Hey Capitalism is flawed who knew lol but it works to a decent extent. It just seems so weird that after so many years of progression we still havent come up with a better system that ensures that the common man can excel.
I went to college that i couldnt afford, slogged my ass off to get a degree, worked nights and weekends..and presto got a high paying job and was on my way to the american dream?
Good firms wanted experience and a proven track record so after years of working for flybynight shell (empty) corporations that made a killing in the market in six months and filled bankruptcy and disappeared faster than david copperfiled, i finally got a job that paid me less than 50k a year....only to be laid off due to a recession. Now where is the justice in that?? i am not alone millions of people are in my boat...and its sinking fast.
i have no aversion towards the rich, hell i want to be one of them, but what i do resent is the idea that the rich dont want to contribute to the well being of the working class.
Normally in this country the government tends to look after the wealthy, there is no socialized medical help, the number of non insured patients is appalling, and if you are poor the general consensus of the rich is ...."well thats not my bloody problem" but when the government does someting charitable and necessary as say a tax break for children all of a sudden there is a huge uproar bout spending "hard earned tax payer dollars on people with kids when i the richer man dont have children, why should i have to pay for others that do?"
This is very disturbing. If you make good money, dont have children and pay taxes, all you are doing is helping the rest of your fellow neighbors that dont have the means to provide for their kids....if you dont make enough money, have children and get a tax break all you are doing is getting some form of compensation and help for your more fortunate neighbors. I see this as a good thing
