He needs to turn that around and claim the truth. There are millions of Americans, not the working poor or those on SS who have earned it, but millions, still, who spend GENERATIONS living off of ALL the working people in America. These people have not suffered during this "great recession" even thought their burden to society is a part of it's cause. They haven't lost a job or had their income levels reduced or had to worry about a thing. Do you see or hear anything about them saying, "Hey, we know you people paying for us are hurting, we want you to cut our bennies to help out"? No? You know why? They don't give a damn about the workers, the taxpayers, the business owners, or anyone else.
Yet they demand we keep caring about them.
