Since none of you dishonest tea bagger simpletons could give a direct, honest answer to this question... The richest 1% of Americans control 40% of the wealth in this country. This is the highest level since the 1920s & 1930s. Do you tea baggers honestly believe that this has NO negative impact on the other 99% of Americans?? ...I've come up with a new question that might be a little easier for you intellectually challenged idiots -- In 1980, CEOs only made 30 times as much as the average American. Now, CEOs make over 300 times as much as the average Americans. Have CEOs "earned" a 1000% pay raise over the past 30 years?? Think long and hard on this one, tea bagger simpletons! Don't forget that it is your PEASANT DUTY to protect the wealth of rich Repugs!! They are your moral and intellectual superiors, after all.
