I have some very wealthy family members and they are all far left liberals.
1. They believe the Federal Government should help people. NOT them. Not their time, talent or money. But somebody else should do it. They support every big/all government programs as it helps their guilt for having so much.
2. NONE of them believe that ANY of these programs will affect them. Wait in line for a doctor? Not a chance in hell. Section 8 housing? Not in their neighborhood. Private schools for all their children. Government programs are for the little people.
3. Taxes? They have armies of accountants and lawyers and shield nearly all of their assets and income. Taxes are for the little people.
4. They honestly believe they are doing God’s working supporting Obama.
Are any of your relatives by any chance Soros, Gates, and Buffet?
In reality, wealthy people are the most charitable and pay 90% of the income taxes. Even here in FR, this class warfare is happening. Without wealthy people, there would be no museums and businesses. Without wealthy people who have money to SPARE , there is no investments and capital markets. If a country has full of poor and middle class, we call that a third world hellhole!
Bingo! And sadly they’re right it won’t affect them because they have the money to afford high gas, food, clothes, healthcare premiums and EPA regulations.
The only way they’ll feel it is if they sell a product and the average slob (in their eyes) can’t buy it any longer due to lack of income.
