Many seem to have no problem redistributing debt, but they seem to object if we are talking about assets?
The way I see it the bottom 50% own about 1% of the country so they owe about 1% of the debt, that works out to closer to around a thousand bucks for most of us, the problem is getting those who have a bigger stake to share in the debt to the same extend they share in the country.
More data (pesky facts):
Put another way:
The way I see it people choose between those that get on the ballot for that you need money, truth be told the whole thing is owed by them that write the checks that send'em to Washington, that's about the top .5%.
