    we ever get back to an ecnomy that works for nearly everyone and lets us pay down the debt as long as the wealthy keep taking a significantly large slice of the pie than they deserve.

    Given the exponential growth of our population - more people needing jobs at a faster rate than jobs will likely ever be created, allowing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy to expire won't be enough. Taxes on the wealthy need to be raised well beyond that and/or wages for everyone else need to be raised.  

    Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
