How about representing the middle class and working families, for a change, rather than the wealthiest people. That is what democracy is about.
“The top 1 percent now owns more wealth than the bottom 90 percent. That is not the foundation of a democratic society. That is the foundation for an oligarchic society. The rich get richer. The middle-class shrinks. Poverty increases. Apparently, good is not good enough yet for some of the richest people.”
“That is not apparently enough for our friends at the top who have a religious ferocity in terms of greed. They need more, more. It is similar to an addiction. Fifty million is not enough. They need $100 million. One hundred million is not enough; they need $1 billion. One billion is not enough. I am not quite sure how much they need. When will it stop?“
