    It's not what the 1% have or don't have. It is the preferential treatment that sucks.

    The 1% cannot pay the bills, fill the military needs nor provide the health care this country demands.

    If any group should receive preferential treatment it is the 99 % that do pay the bills, fill the military needs and spend tons and tons of money that which keeps the USA
    in what jobs are left. The 99% are the primary stakeholders of the USA!

    When it comes to funding Social Service needs in this country it is the 99% so why does the 1% bitch about the 99% using what they pay for?

    What the military needs are bodies. Let the 1% serve. They need to protect their money.

    The 1% are bitching about Social Security? Where?
    And the last time I checked, the 1% paid over 35% of all Federal Income taxes.

    35% is no indication that they paid anything near in taxes what the 99% shell out.

    35% does not represent dollars or sense.

    Idiot.....


    Of that 99% i would guess only about 30% are the "primary stakeholders"..... you know the middle class who pay for everything. They are the ones who work and pay for the ones who don't pay for jack shit....

    and lets define thoes who dont pay for jack shit before you get your panties in a wad..... the ones who do not pay any federal income tax at the end of the day... the ones who get it all back.... or get back more then what they pay into it.

    Sure it is. 1% paid more than one third of all income taxes.

    The other 99% paid less than two thirds.
