This is hindering poor people from making extra money. This is happening because of the fact that wealthy people don’t want to pay their taxes. They’re trying to get tax cuts from the government, so they won 't have to pay the taxes that are necessary. This is taking away from the hard working families that work for everything they have, because of the fact that they are losing money to support their family.

    Some believe the rich should pay more in taxes in addition to others are complaining about how easy the rich have it. The chances are that the author who makes such a statement is highly likely to be uneducated or simply frustrated. However, some make valid points, and they have reasons for their opinion. A well-known politician, Paul Ryan, wrote about this issue and stated, “We 're all dependent on the government services that we too easily take for granted. The wealthiest Americans receive the greatest benefits, but they insult the rest of us by treating their tax responsibility like a game.” Again, the wealthy people that he is describing are the people who have either inherited the money, or so called “fake suits”, or are people who have made their money by climbing the corporate ladder of large corporations that have deceived average citizens to become so broad.…

    1: What is Trickle-down economics Trickle- down economics is the idea that the money that the “Super Rich” spend circulates and promotes growth in the economy and benefits others.

However in reality taxes on the rich are among the lowest they have ever been. America has seen a steady tax decline on wealthy Americans since the Reagan administration while wages for the middle class have barely increased after adjusting for inflation. All while the rich claim that decreased taxes on the rich will lead to a better economy but when one looks back, the economy was doing the best when America had high tax rates on the rich and they paid their fair share. As a result, it brought in more revenue and increased government spending on the country 's infrastructure creating more jobs.…

    The extreme inequality is already contributing to social polarization, which causes the poor to be less happy and leads to social turbulence. According to Oishi, Kesebir & Diener (2011, p.1099), Americans who earn less money will feel unhappy with the expansion of the income gap due to unjust treatment and lack of trust. As the gap between wealthy and poor increase, the poor feel like they are victims of social injustice. Therefore, they cannot easily trust others and feel unhappy. Moreover, in “For Richer, for Poorer” (2012, p.4), the author states the inequality hinders the poor to get the chance of education, triggers a hatred for the rich, and is a threat to the development of the society.…
