    Here's a partial list of 1% suspects and an opportunity for you to cast a vote for your favorite parasite:

    "In just the last generation, the richest 1% almost quadrupled their incomes.

    "The average wealth of the 1% is 225 times bigger than the wealth of the typical household – the highest it’s ever been..."

    "Last year, half of Americans earned less than $26,000 while CEOs at top 500 companies raked in an average of $11 million.

    "Over the past decade, earnings for middle-class Americans actually fell. In fact, working Americans’ wages are now a lower percentage of our economy than they’ve ever been..."

    "The 1% is not an accident – it is the result of policies our government chose to pursue."

    Who Are The 1%? Vote on it now.

    I'd say that this is the crux of the problem:

    "Over the past decade, earnings for middle-class Americans actually fell. In fact, working Americans’ wages are now a lower percentage of our economy than they’ve ever been..."

    Progressive economic policies fail every time, no matter the size or scope of the city, state or nation that applies them

    How are you defining successful?

    Michael Bloomberg reportedly added $4.5 billion to his net worth during the twelve months following the Crash of 2008.

    Does that make 1% Mike a success?

    Makes no difference whether they 'set salaries'. The point.... voting republican or democrat and you're part of the problem. Kick 'em out.
