A great quote to end the week

Though it was uttered 76 years ago, it remains just as apt today. In fact, if one merely changes the date mentioned, the statement would work just as well for the 44th president as it did for the 32nd.

“You would think, to hear some people talk, that those good people who live at the top of our economic pyramid are being taxed into rags and tatters. What is the fact? The fact is that they are much farther away from the poorhouse than they were in 1932.” – FDR, address at Worcester, MA, October 21, 1936.”
