    a hit on - all of those corporate profits have sucked away revenue too. Revenue that would pay for infrastructure, earned benefits, pensions, and many other resources that this country and its citizens are being starved of by the few greedy top-percenters.

      The greedy top-percenters are taking real value out of our country, and we are all the poorer for it.

      Consumer goods are crap.  It is next to impossible to find decent socks, for example.  Even products from so-called "luxury" brands are poorly made.  But the prices never come down because our money is stolen by the greedy.
