When most progressives figure that out, pigs will have learned how to fly! Politicians today do what feels good, and not what's right. We've become so divided by race, and class warfare, that we no longer consider becoming successful in even our daily lives, for fear we'll be seen as an evil, or greedy pariah in society. This works well with Obamas divide and conquer style of leadership.
The Democrats social left believe all wealth is owned by the Government, and that you having any is because they allow you to have it. This view is a central communist precept: all people live in a commune, there are no individual property rights, and we all share work, income, and property. Business is administered for the good of all from the state level. No person shall have more than another in the commune. Equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity, is the goal. . Democrats will howl that this is not their philosophy, but they will act as if it is. They cannot ceed the failure of this economic philosophy without giving up the power to tax the wealthy disproportionately. So, "eat the rich" is the Marxist cry repeated by today's social Left, and the majority of the Democrat party.
