It is infuriating that "we" cannot do anything to fight the reaping of the working poor. It feels like we can only sit on the sidelines and see the wealthiest taking more money out of the economy that needs bolstering, even if the current economic trends show the U.S. to have all time high profits. The money from the record profits need to go back to the American's in order to truly be reinvested.
