The Solution to Wealth Inequality?

“We have a situation where we have pushed in come to the top… both economic and cultural, and we have decreased the rate of which we tax the top by 60-70% over the last 30-40 years. The collision of these two things is simply devastating to the Middle Class. We simply cannot afford to invest in a things that support the middle class to enable them to continue to be the robust participants in our consumer based economy in this feed-back loop. The way to get it started again is to get people like me to pay their fair again and support our customers. These policies are destroying our customer base.”
