Coddling the Rich
Republicans are obsessive about coddling the wealthiest 2% of people. They are concerned the need careful handling or they will stop trying to make even more money by investing. This makes no sense to me for the following reasons:

- Surely the very richest people are incredibly, perhaps even excessively motivated, or how else could have found themselves in the top 2%.
- Giving rich people even more money is like giving obese people even more whipped cream. It will satiate desire not stimulate hunger.
- The wealthy are so rich that extra money would have no detectable effect on their lifestyle. Even a tiny bit extra for the middle or lower class can make the difference of life and death. There is no point is directing such a most of the total wealth to the wealthy. They can’t even tell the difference.
