It's difficult to understand where some folks are coming from when they constantly show contempt for the wealthy.
I am 98, and my wife is 93. We were married on June 1, 1940, and since 1987 have been solely dependent on Social Security benefits.
One should understand the millions of jobs created by those who invest dollars in industry and businesses. So kindly shut your mouth, as they might outsource their money into China, for instance, and those of you who constantly cackle negatively might have to learn how to pull a rickshaw.
In fact, if I were president, I would pressure Congress to give the rich the same breaks we receive. If one does not like it, then purchase a one-way flight to some distant island where you can establish your own type of government where you can rule the monkeys. Then you can rule your constituents as your equal.
The one wish to all citizens besides good health is to develop some common sense.
