I thought billionaires and millionaires were "job creators". Since we now have more billionaires and millionaires then ever.........shouldn't they be creating more jobs then ever???
Hmmmmmm. Go figure.
GREED WILL DESTROY THIS COUNTRY! Already has actually.... since even broke **** people in poverty want to give billionaires tax breaks and advocate for them for some insane resaon.
Something to think about, most if not all of these billionaires could drop the prices of their products by 25% and still be billionaires. The one thing that they have in common is greed. Those 500 buck computers could be sold at 375.00 and Gates would still be a billionaire, Exxon could drop their gas prices from $4.00 to $3.00 and still make billions. You can cry all you want about them working for their money and I will agree, they did work hard to get where they are, but their greed let them get there quicker by them saying "supply and demand" and we of the 99% has let them get there on our backs. If they gave up 25% of their profit, then the rest of us would get a 25% increase in our buying power, we'd live better and they would still be billionaires. If all of us working for a living and working for wages would just for one month, stay home, drive 50% less, don't buy anything for a month except for medicine and groceries, no new clothes, no new cellphones, no nothing for only one month, then we'd send these creedy billionaires a message that we don't like what they do to us, if it was possible to do this for 3 months, we would then have their attention, but that would be a miracle if we could do it for that long.
He who dies with the most toys... is just as dead.
Did it ever occur to you they earned it through hard work and intelligent fearless risk and the Billionaires you seem to despise employee 100,000 of thousand people and they supply the cash base needed to feed the stock market that in turn feeds the investor that feeds the engine of businesses.
I assume you will just sit on your can and damn everyone who has made the country run. While your sitting there grousing in self pity pick up a book on economic cycle stimulation and just maybe you can trace your income back to someone whose is busting their butt for you spend money.
DavidBl....there are a lot of people out there that work extremely hard but get crap for pay....I'm a farmer and put in long hard hours and can barely make ends meet....and I don't take government money either. Tell me how this is far. You think that all people who are not rich don't work for a living, the issue is it's all these people who work their A$$ES off for these folks who are getting richer and richer.
What makes more sense to me is that these companies quite paying these CEO's these massive payouts and take that money and give the employees a raise (they are the ones doing the manual labor) and then lower the price of the goods....that way people could afford to buy more things which would put money back into the economy.....but I am sure you (DavidBl) will just say that I'm just a dumb farmer and go back to corn field.
