PINCH, I understand what is going on and if I dwell on it, it pisses me off. However, If you believe Bernie or any socialist has the answer you are sadly mistaken (#Socialism Kills).
You can raise the taxes, the rich will just move somewhere else. Look at all the money that is being stashed off-shore where they do not have to pay US taxes, the estimates are in the trillions.
This is why socialist countries have walls to keep people in and the kill people who try to leave.
If these people and their money leave, instead of the top 1% paying 40% or 50% of the taxes, the taxes will move down to the middle class (because we cannot afford to leave).
I do not believe there is a good answer to all this. So rather than allowing myself to be controlled by those who have more (which I believe Bernie and his followers do when the focus so much on the 1%),
I chose to live within my means. This I can control *and* this makes me content. Worrying about those who have more only makes you feel bad. What did you mother tell you, focus on the stuff you control...
