    Welcome to Plutocrapia, brought to you by the RepubliFOXican party, aided and abetted by people who are led by the nose to blame “liberals” for all the country’s problems.

    You are forgetting their cousins: Cherry and Diet, which of course, are a major part of government (well, that and lots and lots of coffee, of course).

    How about that every dollar given to a politician must be matched in charitable contributions?

    We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office, you have to do the bidding of the person who is paying your way. Just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty. If the candidate is getting his money from small donors or from unions which are just groups of small donors, he is going to be working for the middle class. If his donations are from corporations or 1%ers, his votes are going to serve to make them richer at the expense of everyone else. The person who is supposed to represent you will actually be working for them, just as you have to do as your boss wants. To work for the middle class would be political suicide.

    Wow, this is a real Gish Gallop you have here, Sharkie.
    1. Many of the people you are including are on Social Security now or in the military, which means they certainly did pay taxes. Proportionally, rich people pay far less than working people.
    2. Nope, not true. The top 1% of the US own 42% of the nation’s wealth back in 2005, and it has been increasing. If you don’t want to believe ThinkProgress, try this report from Forbes: the 85 richest people in the world have as much wealth as the 3.5 BILLION poorest. (http://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2014/01/23/the-85-richest-people-in-the-world-have-as-much-wealth-as-the-3-5-billion-poorest/) (http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/10/03/334156/top-five-wealthiest-one-percent/)
    3. “80% of millionaires are first generation wealthy” comes from “the Millionaire next door.” It’s no longer true (if it ever was, which is debatable). Last year, a report released by US Trust revealed that while a third of baby boomers worth more than $3 million came from lower-middle-class homes (or claimed to), it’s 18% of Gen Xers and 6% of Millennials. Social mobility in the US is now comparable to a banana republic. It helps a LOT to have money in the family already — or connections. (http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/10/16/are-there-still-millionaires-next-door/)
    4. Federal sales tax on everything except unprepared food and clothing under $100 would be a huge windfall for the wealthy and would particularly punish the poor. Why exempt clothing that richer people buy? Fair? Not so.

    “… it’s 18% of Gen Xers and 6% of Millennials…”

    Younger people have less money than older folks? Well, that’s an unprecedented development /sarc.
