According to the NY Times:
"the issue here is not about class envy. Rather, it’s a perception that government policies are skewed toward helping the already wealthy and powerful."
I would strongly disagree with the NY Times about the word "perception." It is not a perception. It is a reality that the lobbyists and fat cats have skewed the system. Rigged the game.
It is one thing to say that America is a land of opportunity -- every person can pull themselves up by their boot straps. That's the illusion.
Unfortunately, fewer and fewer people have "boots."
