Why should the rich keep getting richer at the expense of the middle-class and the underprivileged.At the expense of? Can you give some specifics? Did my wife's high salary cause someone to go to bed without their supper?In my opinion there is a strong moral obligation to assist people.It's called charity. It's good when it's voluntary, not so good when it's coerced.The main factor that contributes to poverty is distribution and this is one way in correcting this problem.Whatever does this mean? I'd say that LBJ's War on Poverty was a main contributor to poverty. Its welfare programs caused the disintegration of the family structure among poor blacks. Today's >70% out-of-wedlock births among blacks is a legacy of big government. I see less government as a better way of correcting the situation than more government. --fleg
