To Comrade Hussein,anyone with a decent income(middle class) is "rich".
If you're NOT on government assistance,you're "rich",to him.
Consider the words of the man Comrade Obama hired as his top adviser on science and technology, John P. Holdren:
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to DE-DEVELOP the United States. . . . Resources and energy must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries. This effort must be largely political.”
