That seems like an excellent idea. Reward those driven to success.
Poor people just complain and complain. And do not do anything to get out of the rat-trap. To start, educate yourself about economy and how money works.
Also, If you think you pay too much taxes as an employee. Why the hell are you still an employee???
The actual current debt liability is almost $55,000 per person in the USA. Our debt per person is much worse than Greece.

What they think is a can being kicked down the road is likely to turn out to be a live grenade. No household or business could survive while acting as irresponsibly as our government.
Few Words of Gratitude" at: Miguel Fernandez - MikeThirty.com
Just read your intro:
Also a big thank you too to all those who had caused me some kind of trouble or hard times. Because I had the chance to learn from those mistakes and be a better human being.
I do believe that whatever we experience that is bad is designed to protect us from even worse that could happen down the road. A warning so to speak.
About the debt issue: I was nowhere near that amount, but it was still significant enough to live in worries for some time.
The problem with lacking money is usually not money, but the mindset.
So yes, what you have stated here, I am in agreement with.
I'd also add that if Obama is a Socialist as some claim, what has he done to hurt capitalism? How's the Stock market doing? The Dow? Any corrupt bankers been sent to jail? LOL, it's no wonder America is in the shape it's in.
"The New Deal was really a Screw Deal." (sigh) I truly hope you or yours never find yourselves in need.

So US is worry about rich getting richer and having too much power????
US Government had been doing the same against the entire world. US got power, and it keep getting more, more and more power until it had the world under it's feet. And now because we are bankrupt we are blaming the rich?????
IF YOU ARE PROUD OF US, PLEASE, BE PROUD OF RICH PEOPLE TOO.
By the way, I love US and live in US too. And don't agree in so many things.
The facts do support my claims about FDR tax rates. Those tax rates are common knowledge and can be found on a multitude of government and economic web sites. They are not my facts. They are the real facts.
Obama really stands for only two things, and his actions have made that abundantly clear: Create class warfare and use it to divide the country. He has openly surrounded himself with Marxists, Communists and radicals throughout his lifetime. Read his books.
I am probably older than you and I have never seen any president piss away as many taxpayer dollars as we have seen with Obama. It is not just investments in failed solar companies, military hardware given to Egypt (who is not our friend or ally), or multitudes of vacations each of which cost taxpayers millions of dollars. And it wasn't George Bush's policies that got us here. You can blame Bush for the wars, but the real wild spending spree started with Pelosi and the Democrats--and went exponentially wild under Obama.
I do know for a fact is that thousands of businessmen quietly went to jail under Bush in the aftermath of Enron, which Bush had nothing to do with. All of the offenses were committed under the Clinton years, because Clinton--like Obama--doesn't want to appear to be too anti-business. I think most of us would agree that hundreds of Wall street types should be in jail right now. Instead, Obama threw billions of taxpayer money at the problem, a large part of which went into paying bonuses to the culprits and the Obama administration approved the bonuses.
I am a businessman who has run an international company and I do not know any business executive who thinks Obama understands anything about business. Do you understand that over 170,000 pages of new regulations have been created under Obama? The unelected regulators that Obama appointed are crippling business.
Here is a John Stossel report on this topic.
Regulations Keep Coming Under Obama
The current stock market growth is not necessarily a good thing, nor is it a sign of a good economy. People are putting money in the stock market because it is a better bet than the banks. The growth in the economy continues to be anemic at best. The real indicator of a healthy economy is job growth. The fake numbers that Obama's people keep putting out do not reflect the real problem, which is that more people are dropping out of the workforce and eliminated from the calculation almost every month than the number of people who actually find jobs. The real unemployment number is around 11% to 15%.
No one said that you are a lazy person because you voted for Obama. I just simply think you are misguided and misinformed, but you are entitled to your opinion. You will never hear about many of these issues on ABC, NBC, CBS, or especially MSNBC because they go to great lengths to censor any negative news about Obama.
I challenge you to name one good thing Obama has done for the country that did not simply focus on providing benefits for his constituents.
By the way, I previously saw the Nick Hanauer lecture on YouTube. Nick is a wealthy investor simply because he invested in Amazon in its early days. He is not an economist, or a businessman, and has no special qualifications. He has a degree in philosophy. He is simply espousing the Liberal viewpoint. Check out his Wikipedia page, and especially the comment, TED Curator Chris Anderson stated that he felt Hanauer's talk was "explicitly partisan" and included "a number of arguments that were unconvincing.
No offense intended, but you really do need to change the flavor of Kool-Aid that you drink. :D
