Rich People Have Rights Too; Says Mr Babs

I recently read an article on a site that allows posts from a variety of political viewpoints by a man called Mr Babs.

America is primarily made up of people. Average people with modest amounts of money. Most of us are of this group. The 99%. So why do we rely on crumbs from the 1%. Can they really eat enough for just the crumbs to feed all of us?

Why should we have to worry about the crumbs?……………………………………………………
