The Wealthy in this country benefit from a strong middle class

You would think so; Henry Ford realized that his workers were also his consumers and paid a living wage, but the gilded class today don't seem to be very aware of what goes on beyond their heavily-armed and well-guarded gated communities. The way the rich snatch up every dollar they can, the way they fight union rights, the ACA and any other legislation that makes life better for the poors and middle class, you would think we were taking food out of their mouths.
Ditsy DeVoss owns TEN yachts and TWO helicopters. What do you need TEN yachts for? How do you even use TEN yachts? That level of wealth is obscene. Yet she does everything she can as a civil servant to make sure that you and your family can be ripped off by for-profit colleges with zero recourse. She is working hard to DESTROY public education so that your kids can't move up the ladder to a better life.
The gilded class have climbed the ladder, and are now spitting on us while doing everything they can to pull the ladder up so that the average person has no chance to improve their lives. They are completely tone-deaf. If things don't change, the poors will be at the gates with their pitchforks and torches before long.
