Darrell Issa, the richest man in Congress, said America has made "our poor somewhat the envy of the world."
Asked by CNNMoney whether he feels personally responsible to address income inequality in the United States, the Republican Congressman from California said "absolutely." But he noted that America is the richest country on earth and implied that those in poverty here are better off than the poor in other nations.
"If you go to India or you go to any number of other Third World countries, you have two problems: You have greater inequality of income and wealth. You also have less opportunity for people to rise from the have not to the have," said Issa. In the U.S., he noted there is better availability and access to quality public education.
So shut up you awful poor people. If you really were moral, you'd have $450 million like Darrell Issa. Since you don't, he's obviously correct about us.
We should probably cut taxes on the 1%, just to be sure.
