72% of Millionaires Don't Think They're Rich

Jul 29, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WCHO-FM Washington Court House

While your first reaction may be to scoff - especially since the median household income is $51,500 - the study points to a real shift in what it means to be rich, and it isn't just wads of cash.

They economy is not doing well. Growth is tepid at best, and very few sectors have come close to reaching their prerecessionary levels.

It may be doing better, but there are still a lot of people who don't feel confident in the economy. And perhaps those are the ones who were sampled in this survey.....

I'm not going to feel sorry for any millionaires... struggling to get by... when those people think the minimum wage should be eliminated.

However, this bassackward <cough> *argument* is interesting because even the dumbest teabagger would have to think: "Golly gee- if it's tough for millionaires, it might also be tough for walmart slaves!"

Well, maybe they might think that...

What are you worried about it for anyhow? You haven't earned a paycheck in a good 15 years now, ever since you hurt you back picking up that heavy (empty) shot glass. Poor Ferret.....

You might need a larger circle of friends...From 30 days ago...CONSUMER CONFIDENCE HIGH, SURVEY REPORTS....AP(6-29-13)....A measure of U.S. consumer confidence stayed near a six year high in June as higher home prices boosted household wealth. This survey shows Americans remain upbeat about the economy, despite wild gyrations in the stock market......The University of Michigan said Friday that its final reading of consumer sentiment in June was 84.1 That's an improvement from a preliminary reading of 82.7 issued on June 14.....And it is just slightly below May's final reading of 84.5, which was the highest since July 2007.....Rising household wealth was the main reason consumers remained optimistic.......

It's tragicomedy that millionaires would receive any sympathy at all, especially in an economy with a market that favors the already wealthy. If you can't make it on a million dollars, maybe it's because you're not trying! These people need to pull themselves up by the Gucci bootstraps and do better!!

This is also an economy where, disabled sailors at the low end of the economic and social spectrum's can't even afford to maintain FREE profiles on chat rooms!

And speaking of people who post all day on Topix, what about lawyers who, if they were to become millionaires, would STILL not feel safe but, would continue to post on Topix telling people that poor people shouldn't be paid a minimum wage because they're only holding themselves back and stealing from the millionaires who- I might add- are not REALLY that safe and need more tax breaks!!!!!

Is that race baiting, class warfare scumbags such as yourself are not in jail for being the thieves/criminals that you are.

You're pretending that things ARE better. They're not. Even the GAO (Government Accountability Office) disputes just about every "number" that comes out of the current regime. Better start listening to someone other than the sword swallowers at MSNBC. That is, unless you like being broke....

And???? The IGs in Obama's own administration say the numbers don't add up. Obamanomics is a failure and a blatant, flat out LIE. If you don't believe me, go try to sell your phony business to some poor sucker in the current economic environment. The ONLY reason real estate is "up" (about 3%) is because Obama's influencing the banks again to lend money to those who can't pay it back. Soon: Round 7 or 8 of bail out Fannie & Freddie, sponsored by the tax payer.......

I'm not the GOP, but I refuse to vote for tax & spend liberals. Any idiot that thinks you can spend your way out of debt doesn't deserve to be in charge of anything.
