Huge inequality no surprise with Congress a “millionaire’s club”

“In reality, the top 20 percent controlled about 84 percent of the wealth, while the bottom quintile controlled just 0.1 percent. The combined net worth of the bottom 40 percent, in fact, accounted for just 0.3 percent of the nation’s wealth.”

Those who work hard on elitism, keeping the super wealthy ever wealthier and the poor poorer, are telling people that the policies that keep them poor are the policies that will make them wealthy.

“…all voter anger has done is ‘empower people who are doing everything they can to make inequality worse.’ The Republican candidates for president – most of whom claim Tea Party allegiance – are now calling for increased taxes on the poor and reduced taxes on the rich. And they want to repeal the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill meant to provide some protection to consumers from the excesses of a deregulated financial industry.”
