I hope you will take a look at the link following this article.
I know that many of you out there don’t have a lot of time to consider just what is going on in the division of wealth in this country. After all, if you are getting by on whatever paltry income you have, who cares?
A huge share of the nation's economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244.
Frankly, I am fed up with the continuing Republican efforts to increase the share of wealth for their big time contributors at the expense of the rest of us. What is happening in Wisconsin, for example, is the tip of an iceberg which looms before the ship of state and like the Titanic we are just as apt to slip beneath the waters of despair. I know it is not simply a Republican problem. Dems have their share of poor philosophical standards.
Over the past weeks there has been so much discouraging news concerning the total lack of fiscal responsibility with our representatives that I am exhausted just thinking about how to bring them all together coherently so they could be understood by everyone.
I give up on the big picture. But the details in the attached link will show you a great deal about who has the money and how it is being directed away from the majority of us. Notice the estimated net worth of your Congressperson.
