Do the rich need welfare? How else do they get "richer'!

Big oil,big land owners and big corporations get a lot bigger checks than welfare queens! If we get rid of the 1% welfare cheats and just have the welfare queens,we(99%) could all be rich!

Well, we all know that the Wall Street Welfare Kings living in palaces have bigger political clout than the Welfare Queen living in a hovel.

If a business need money from the people's government to survive,does that make them "obsolete"?

Nah. Just an historical repeat. Monarch and nobels lived off the peoples wealth production as well.

Titles have changed, but the Medieval wealth distribution system of old Europe is once again at the forefront.

FDR's policies were reversed a long time ago. It just took awhile for the economy to get back to the 1920's....or Europe's 1600's depending on where you're viewing from. Same thing.

400 have as much wealth as the bottom 185,000,000. That resembles medieval Europe, more than a modern, democratic state, doesn't it?

Poly,you`re right looking at the past,but looking at the future,i think private ownership of community economics is "obsolete". It`s more efficient/effective for the community to do & control common economics.

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
