    Right now all you've got is an exercise in question begging. Please explain how this so-called wealth transfer is taking place.

    And that wealth gap has increased drastically under Obamma. Strange that democrats are called the party of the middle class when they are really the party of the Wall Street Bankers and the wealthy Jews who bankroll the democrat party.

    There are a lot of wealthy people of all races who fund democrat causes. Why single out Jews?

    I'd still like to know the mechanism for the so-called wealth transfer. Assuming it's happening, how is is accomplished?

    Look at his statement:
    Note that Mr. Sanders hits all the classic buzzwords. If not in this quote (which I cannot find anywhere else online), then in a speech on the House floor where he used the famous "millionaires and billionaires" phrase. He uses standard politicianese vagaries like "enormous transfer of wealth." Okay, how enormous?

    First, who is taking from the poor and giving to the rich?
    Second, How are they taking from the poor and giving to the rich?
    Third, How much has been taken?
    Fourth, How do you propose we get it back?

    We can talk about the "wealth gap" all we want to, but the standard political answer has always been to use the police power of the federal government to confiscate the earned income of one person for the express purpose of simply giving it to another.

    Just look around you ITL. Rich people are breaking into the homes of poor people and stealing mason jars full of loose change. They are stealing EBT cards and bags full of deposit bottles off the back porch.

    If WE are taking from the poor and working class families of America and giving it to the rich, then why is Sanders doing such? And why are you doing it, boy?

    The wealth transfer is the result of the policies of the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates very low. Thus the stock market is the only place where people can make money and that is why the rich are getting richer, the middle class is getting poorer, and the poor live off both. I believe 8 million have been added to the disability rolls under Obama and i8 million have been added to the food stamp giveaway!

    You don't really expect an answer from ctb, do you? :rolleyes:

    It's just another of his dumb unsupported statements straight down the party line. The socialist party this time.

    That's not the assertion made in the OP. CBT says the rich are taking from the poor.

    ITL, I believe, wants to know how that is being done??????

    Mitch if you are directing that at me that is a blatant lie. My Savior was a Jew!

    Anyone with half a brain knows that the Jews in this country are extremely liberal and bankroll the democrat party.
