So many middle class people are struggling JUST to survive - working hard to pay the bills while in fear of losing our jobs.
As the wealth gap grows larger.

"The 400 wealthiest Americans are worth a record $2.02 trillion in 2013, roughly equivalent to the gross domestic product of Russia. That is a gain of $300 billion from a year ago, and more than double the collective net worth of the wealthiest 400 Americans a decade ago." - end quote
The rich get richer as the middle class continues to struggle.

Come on people wake up. The people on this list are not job creators they are job destroyers. Their wealth is tied to stocks and investing. They put pressure on companines to produce results.

Could someone enlighten me on how they actually create jobs? And please don't give me they spend money spurring growth - hogwash. They hoard it away. Imagine what 2 trillion in average american hands would do to the economy. It would be spent not stashed away in some overseas bank.
