A silly & trivial point.- Wealthy Americans would do better with smaller shares of a rapidly-growing economy than with the large shares they now possess of an economy that’s barely moving.
ALL Americans would do better with ANY share of a rapidly-growing economy than with the shares they now possess of an economy that’s barely moving.
I blame the anti-business, anti-growth, anti-success liberal big-government statists and class warrior/redistributionistas that Americans have been foolish enough to hand over the keys to the US Treasury and federal power.
Where is your data saying they do not? Link it, please.If they were rational, the wealthy would support public investments in education and job-training, a world-class infrastructure (transportation, water and sewage, energy, internet), and basic research – all of which would make the American workforce more productive.
Of course, this is not the REAL issue, is it, joe. The REAL issue you are disingenuously trying to hide behind this "public investment" smokescreen is out-of-control SPENDING on ENTITLEMENTS. And that in order to afford these kinds of "public investments" (that do, in fact, enjoy a healthy degree of support from "the wealthy," as you're so pleased to demonize these valuable and productive fellow Americans), out-of-control ENTITLEMENT spending must be radically slashed back.
You strongly support radically slashing back Entitlement spending in order that we can afford to make more of these kinds of "public investments," right, joe?
Not to mention the fact that these kinds of "public investments" are the proper purview of the STATES in the first instance, NOT the federal government, whose main contribution in such endeavors is to extract even more scarce resources out of the productive private economy just to f**k things up even more than if the States were just left to git 'r done without the meddling interference of useless federal hacks and bureaucrats.
