You just described the design of communism which lead to the downfall of the Soviet Union. If everyone gets the same income, why work harder?

Roger that. Apparently mr/ms loyalprog doesn't have a clue about econ 101. Obviously missed Neal's point about businesses closing their doors if they can't make any money. I guess these folks never heard of "working" 2 jobs if that's what you need to do. We all may be equal (supposedly by constitutional mandate?) but the news is that "Life Ain't Fair" regardless. If you have the drive and desire to succeed you can make it happen. Lots of people have done it. Yup, it ain't easy and probably sucks a lot of the time but it boils down to how bad do you want to improve your condition. Like the Iron Lady said, sooner or later you run out of other peoples money. I guess we just go shake the money tree in the back yard.
