The Problem Isn't Our Work Ethic, It's the Rigged Game
"Cain and Romney and the rest of their party produce all sorts of flat-earth arguments against any government action such as public works and restoring taxes on the rich. They also label the Occupy Wall Street protests as “class warfare.”
The truth is, Americans respect wealth and tolerate a remarkable amount of inequality. But they realize the playing field is tilted now and the financial arrangements we all must make are becoming more and more predatory. Something is wrong in America, and it’s not a failure of the work ethic. People feel themselves falling behind."
