Corzine said he was lucky to make his millions. So much for the concept of hard work. He makes it sound like he won the New Jersey lottery. If Corzine is so concerned that the poor and middle class don't have enough money, why doesn't he and his rich friends who believe as he does, give them their own money? Why must government be the great wealth distributor? The answer, of course, is that this is the only way politicians keep themselves in power. With the government collecting more than ever, are the poor less poor? Has the middle class moved up? Cut taxes for everyone who pays taxes is the right approach.
