Congratulations! Your insanity is only overshadowed by your stupidity — you are sending foxes to the Congressional henhouse.
Saturday the U.S. Senate voted on extending the Bush tax cuts for the Middle Class (or what is left of it) — and not extending them for families earning over $250,000. It took 60 votes to break the filibuster (only in America does 60% equal a majority).
Guess what? With 41 Republicans (and some Democrats including Joe “the Douchebag” Lieberman) — it did not pass.
So, asks a puzzled person, isn’t the massive wealth redistribution that has happened over the past thirty years bad for the wealthy too? After all, the companies they own need customers for their goods, and if nobody has any money other than the wealthy, then there’s less goods sold, and the wealthy get less money.
Ah, but … see, the thing is, money isn’t wealth. Wealth is GOODS AND SERVICES. Money is just a handy intermediary to use to transfer goods and services around. What is wealth is what you *buy* with money — things like, say, dachas on the Black Sea, McMansions on the ring road, that sort of thing.
