Soak the Rich

Many people are convinced that the rich are responsible for the recession. We hear them say that the greedy Bankers are the problem. The greedy Bankers caused all our problems. If we arrest the Bankers and tax the rich everyone will have a job and everything will be alright.
Why do they believe this? What evidence is there that this is true?
Those who believe in tax and spend politics have been saying it and no one challenges them. Isn’t the media supposed to represent the people and ask the questions that will challenge the questionable facts presented for public consumption?
Who are the greedy bankers who caused the recession? What did they do that caused the recession? Did they issue those mortgages to people who couldn’t afford to pay them back because they were greedy or because the law required it? A law that Congress passed, to pander to the poor, and required the Bankers to follow even if it didn’t make good business sense.
How will taxing the successful in this country create enough jobs to put the millions of unemployed back to work? How will taking money out of the economy and putting it in the hands of the serial spenders improve the economy?
Just because a Politian says something, does that make it a fact or a statement worth investigating? Politicians will say whatever they can get away with. Aren’t we supposed to look to the media to ask those questions and get the answers for all of us?
It’s not the politician’s fault for lying. They don’t know any better. They’ve been allowed to get away with it for years. Part of it is the voter’s fault because they keep voting for the liars. They keep voting for the liars because the media is not doing their job. They are not looking out for the public.
The media is why some people believe that the greedy bankers are the bad guys and that taxing the rich will make everything OK.
