** Despite the class warfare rhetoric you're hearing, there is far more money that can be confiscated from the vast middle class than there is to be plundered from the relatively thin ranks of the wealthy. **
Can you do the math for this statement? How was this calculation made?
The ranks of the wealthy may be thin, but their wallets and portfolios are quite fat.
Also, how do you define "money" (as opposed to "wealth") in the quote above? Are you talking about gross earned income, net earned income, including/excluding capital gains, interest, dividends?
