  •  I want more than slight inconvenience (16+ / 0-)

    When I see a ceo of a health insurance company building a $5 million house with a $17,000 gold plated faucet in his master bath.  Money he got by selling junk insurance that in every other industrialized nation would be illegal.  Money he made by denying many people coverage.  A $17,000 faucet that was paid for by 3 unsuspecting people who thought they were buying health insurance at $500 a month for a whole year only to find out they had to pony up another $2,500 or $5,000 before they got to see a penny in benefits.  

    I want those people to be a bit more than just inconvenienced.  I want to see those gold plated faucets shoved so far up their asses you can twist their ears to turn the faucet on.

      asking for them to be slightly inconvenienced mocks them yet can't be spun as class warfare. How can anyone defend asking the richest to be slightly inconvenienced while asking everyone else to sacrifice.

      Plus, as I said, if they were only slightly inconvenienced, that would bring in a lot of revenue. It takes a lot of taxes for a billionaire to be even slightly inconvenienced.

      An old fashioned commons stockade is also an image that comes to mind.
