Because those who earn their way and take care of themselves are not the problem. Those who invest on Wall Street are investing in America, that is the money that drives business. The companies they invest in give millions of people jobs and supply goods and services to keep America's economy going. That benefits all of Americans, those who wish to work at making a decent life for themselves and provide for their families, as well as those who are not willing to do anything to improve their own lives and sit around whining that the taxpayers don't want to share what they've worked for with the "dirt poor" who won't work for their own.Why don't you holler about how Wall Street is regulated or big banks. Why be so concerned about the dirt poor! Sorry society we are!!!
Yeah, it is a sorry society where an ever growing segment of our population feels they are entitled to a portion of the paycheck someone else worked for because they have a sob story, didn't finish their education and have made bad choices in their lives. Where generations of families sit around whining that the giveaway programs don't support the lifestyle they want to live but they refuse to do anything to improve their own lot in life. Where people have babies then declare that the taxpayers are responsible for feeding their children, because as parents they are failures. Where those who won't do for themselves, gripe about the people who work and take care of themselves. Those who call the working man heartless if he is not glad to be taxed to death so the government can distribute his hard earned money to supply a free ride to someone who hasn't earned it.
The fact is, those who work, earn and invest money are the driving force in our economy. Supporting the "dirt poor" who don't contribute their fair share is just dumping trillions of dollars down the drain.
