While 98% of Americans spend a large portion of disposable income (CASH) on food and other necessities like rent or a mortgage ... the rich have no threshold of pain that low.
That is why those with wealth are largely insensitive and out of touch with the masses.
Increasing the tax rate for those making over $250k or $400k a year is nothing .... there is no pain and suffering .. a few less binges, a few less indulgent purchases ... while by comparison the bulk of Americans have less to spend on food ... milk for children and other staples of everyday life that are must haves just to live and breath!
This is one fact that is known to all reading this - it is indisputable and thus I have to ask - WHY DOES'NT THE MEDIA discuss income inequalit more??? and why isn't disposable income and first dollars of essential unavoidable spending ever brought to the attention of Americans in the news.
It is a massively deceptive coverup perpetrated by the media propaganda machine this is owned by the corpocracy that rules America!
FIRST DOLLARS of disposable income ... or in simple terms "cold hard cash" must be spent to stay alive.
Until technology shows us how to all survive on energy drinks and vitamins and live in cardboard boxes in freezing weather!
In fact rumor has it that the growing number of homeless Americans is actually a secret experiment to determine how little resources Americans need to stay alive.
So at the same time "discretionary spending"(read: social programs and education) are being targeted by the GOP ... they are fighting for disposable income for those who have more than adequate "first dollars" to cover their basic needs.
Who will pay for every dollar that goes into the pockets of the wealthiest Americans? Those who will have less to spend on food.
Now I ask those who support the GOP - what are you thinking?
Who does your food shopping for you?
