The Buffett Rule: The US ruin is due to the rich not paying taxes...

The Trickle Down Theory: The rich steals from the government in order sport their high living expenses thus only a trickle of money goes to the middle and lower classes.

The rich can steal more than the poor hence are more of a threat to an economic collapse.

The poor steal because the rich steal and see them getting away with it, so it becomes a natural tendency among the have not's.

Income inequality is a strange obsession, at least to the extent the obsessives focus their policy responses on trying to adjust the condition of the top 1% rather than improving the opportunities of everyone else.
