Since you always ask for clarification, here's all you should need, if you have a logical bone in your head that is:
When there's little actual work (not flipping companies or trading stock) in this country, and those that do work are paid squat, the American economy collapses. No work = no pay = broke consumers = no buying = no companies = no economic activity, rinse and repeat.
Even people like you would be lining up for a government check.
Don't believe me? You're to proud? You'd be surprised just how close you are, since you insist you are not part of the 1%.
The good news is "patriots" like you and mitters won't get to take it that far, IMO. There are still people in this country who are interested in real economic sustainability, and not just paying lip service to the "job creation" bullshit. Even the Paulites recognize there is a problem, but seem to readily dismiss the Margaret Thatcher chapter of another collapsing economic empire.
