Examples of Laws That Benefit the Rich at the Expense of the Poor in the United States

Hello. I am new to socialism, and I would really like to know more aout it. On another forum, I tried to hold the position that there are laws that benefit the rich at the expense of the poor in the United States. It seems that my level of education is not up to the task, and I'm getting routed. I was wondering where I can go to learn about laws that benefit the rich at the expense of the poor and also would like to hear examples of such laws. Sorry if my question seems sophomoric to you all. I really would like to improve.

Obama to raise taxes on US millionaires

This looks promising...

President Barack Obama on Monday will call for a higher minimum tax rate on millionaires to ensure they pay the same rate on their earnings as middle-income taxpayers, according to a White House official.

The plan comes as Obama engages in a months-long, countrywide trek to back his $447 billion jobs bill to reduce 9.1 percent unemployment and restore trust in his economic leadership.

Hello from The Redneck Party USA

Hello Folks!

We have created a Grassroots Movement called Redneck Party. We take our name from the "Redneck War" of 1921. Google it! My people marched with red bandannas tied around their necks so they wouldn't shoot each other. Seriously though, amidst being called commies they were some of the most courageous and valiant Patriots of their day.

What about Obama?

I was curious to get some sense of other peoples opinions of Barack Obama's performance so far.

Has he made good on any of his campaign promises?

If you can (or hypothetically could) vote for him again, would you?

Has your opinion of his integrity changed?

Has he on delivered any of the "yes we can", "change" hype?

What do you see as his most positive action?

Negative action?


Pick any item or a couple (or make your own) and have your say.
