    As fast as the number of billionaires is increasing, I would say millionaires are already the second tier of the top 2%. Needless to say, in the minds of every red blooded Republican, this confirms the need to do more to achieve equality at the top. As for the rest of us mere mortals, who cares about the plight of the 47% when there are so many other high priorities for our beloved leaders to focus on? Viva la plutocracia! Oops, I forgot non-English speakers are likely to have to wear symbols on their lapels before they board trains on a one-way trip South.
