I don't think there is consistency by those in the so called 'middle' with the problem being anyone at the top. Various talk radio mouthpieces have identified their selected miscreants and its rarely ANYBODY associated with big business. They feel this nation would be just fine if those at the top were just left alone. Many of those in the 'middle' listen to these soundbites and believe they have all the 'facts' and require no additional information.
Corporate welfare is just as bad and I believe more expensive.
Just to be clear, I am not of the opinion that everyone at the top is taken advantage of their position. Conversely, that's not how its conveyed by these same mouthpieces. They DO lump all these into the same bracket and tie it up with a nice bow so some people don't have to think for themselves. And I have grown completely tired of it.
