Check out this article from Forward Progressives, which I found on one of my favorite blogs, Kissing Fish: Christianity for those who don’t like Christianity.
Once the greed-driven have acquired and protected, they begin to covet. They are not satisfied with all they have; their eye is on all that they don’t have. (Luke 12:15)
Seems pretty straight forward. Greed is perpetual. The more one has, often the more they want. Isn’t that exactly what we’ve seen in the past 30 years? Isn’t this what Trickle Down Economics has given us? In the past 30 years the top 1-5% has grown exponentially, never more so than in the last decade. Yet what has it brought us? Economic failure not seen in over 80 years.
Millionaires crying out they need more. To save our economy they must have—more. Many of these same businesses that proved in the 90′s, with higher taxes, that they could experience historic economic growth now claim that higher taxes destroy growth. They now claim economic prosperity isn’t obtainable at “job destroying” levels of taxation like we had in the 90′s—when we had historic economic growth.
