Poor little rich babies

Super rich people are angry and whining.

Boo-hoo, let's pass the hat for them. One in seven Americans is now below the poverty line, there are more poor people in the country than EVER before, but let's all have a pity party for the luckiest people in the history of humanity.

Of course the GOP is battling hard to protect the wealthy. Mitch McConnell announced that people who make more than a quarter million dollars a year are the ones who've been hit hardest by the recession.

Taxes on the wealthy are lower than they were under Reagan and FAR lower than they were in the 1950s under Eisenhower. Far lower taxes, far more poor people, yet it's the millionaires and billionaires who are bitching?
