What I don’t think the rich (and those who support them) truly understand is that we, the 99%, don’t want to punish them for being rich.
We don’t want to take away what they’ve earned, or ultimately change their way of life. Ultimately all we want, at the most basic level, is to die at a comfortable age amongst our family and know that they are taken care of. In my heart of hearts I think that’s all the 1% really want out of life too.
Really that lies at the crux of why universal health care is so damn important. Why we’re fighting so hard to give everyone that simple opportunity (or the best opportunity possible) to die reasonably happy.
