it has always been this way. what amuses me is that our liberal celebrities, politicians and their ilk, who all want social change, are all in this demographic. yet
when they have to give up $$$$ or be inconvenienced in anyway they want no part of it. or will use the opportunity as a self serving promotion.

So what? The scum at the top (1%) makes the most money while the scum at the bottom (43%) doesn't pay any taxes.

The 1% scum isn't wasting ANY of MY tax dollars, while the 43% scum IS. Which group SHOULDN'T I hate to death, and why?

You should hate the federal reserve system that keeps printing money, and also exports money to foreign banks.
Abolish the federal reserve
