@ Neil T. Read the next few verses about the poor coveting the rich. It will put it in better perspective for you.

Midwest Mom,
So you’re OK with forcing people into unions if they want to support their families? I cannot think of a more perfect example of “unilateral power” than what lays with the union bosses in closed-shop states.

And you’re saying 47% are in poverty? Not so, that’s just the level not paying federal income tax; plenty of non-poor pay no federal income tax. The poor not only pay no federal income tax, they get back more than they had withheld, so it’s a net gain for them. To say the tax system is unfair to them is a lie; if anything, it’s unfair to the 53%.

All the BO apologists seem to overlook the fact this has transpired on BO’s watch. He has been ineffective at allowing the economy to improve, and we are all suffering as a result.
