    seems there is a huge gap between the rich and poor as this quote states "outrage over a wide rich-poor gap and the corruption and privileges that have enriched the elite" only thing is this is in China. Can I please have one Democrat to tell us what government they are seeking that does not have the a huge gap between the rich and the poor?

    Perhaps the government can pass some legislation forcing those employing our most marginal working class to cut their hours back to part-time.

    They can't all cut their hours to part time. Someone has to do the work. They will have to hire a lot more people getting them off of the government dole & my taxes.

    You are a supporter of Obama's plan to have a nation of part time workers.

    Interesting.

    There has always been a wide gap between rich and poor. Our poor today though, have a comfort level that allows them time to complain instead of work. This is right out of Saul Alinsky. This whole manufactured anger is right of the Alinsky playbook. obama must have it memorized.

    Nope they will choose unemployment and welfare because it is more profitable. The part time working class will be the newly licensed illegal immigrants.

    A part time worker is better than a government dependant.

    I would also like to see a dual minimum wage plan. Keep minimum wage rates the same for small employers with less than 50 employees. Then have a second minimum for larger employers of say $11.75/hr after the first year of employment. Because that gets workers above poverty & off of government dole. Unlike small business or home office office needing a staffer to sit around all day waiting in case a customer shows, surfing the web or chatting with friends, big business gets more than their monies worth out of their employees. A big box retailer has their workers humping from the time they show up until they leave. We don't need to be subsidizing them.

    Currently government is subsidizing payrolls of large corporations creating a nation of government Dependants. Republicans are the ones who grew the entitlement state. The only jobs or business that needs subsidizing are ones that can be exported. Domestic sales clerks, cashiers, burger flippers, service industry jobs etc can't be exported thus don't need subsidies.

    Manufacturing & farming etc is where the subsidies should be.
