What about the super rich?
Many letters have recently been published in the Vox Pop about poor people and their apparent "lazy lifestyles." My question is what about the super wealthy? Many of the super rich do not work. They just watch their stocks and inherited wealth increase. Many haven't worked a day in their life. Why don't some of you complain about them being lazy? The large amount of welfare doesn't go to people in poverty, instead, it goes to the wealthy. It goes to corporate "wealthfare." Why aren't those of you complaining about poor people upset that our tax dollars are funding corporations?
