A redistribution of wealth

Mark Perkel, Daily reader

It almost seems humorous when I listen to the Republican Party throwing out the words “redistribution of wealth” as the reason they shouldn’t invest in government welfare services. The way I see it, the wealth would be redistributed from the poor and middle class to the rich. Half the country is owned by the top one percent who have trillions of dollars sitting in offshore accounts. When many of these wealthy individuals had a hand in the downfall of our economy, the government just handed them trillions of dollars that we taxpayers have to pay back. I’d like to see some wealth redistribution back to the rest of the country so we can get back some of the money the Romney types have been stealing from us.
