    Her husband is an investment banker and she made good money on a tv network. There is nothing wrong with people being wealthy. But it is unethical to cut taxes on the wealthy by removing funding for programs to ensure that the poor have things like food, a roof over their head, and basic healthcare.

    And you are a classic Right Winger, who, when unable to support his arguments with legitimate facts, resorts to personal insults. Of a woman whose only fault is being the child of 2 Democratic politicians whom you hate. Typical of the US Right, but at least you run true to form.

    actually, I'm not a Republican at all, but Hilary is a greedy, criminal, power hungry whore (anyone remember her skillful cattle futures trading days?)

    look, Chelsea has all the money she ever needed and could have married some fun artist, musician, golf pro or human rights advocate

    but no, he marries some dirt bag investment banker from New York LMAO (from Goldman, of all places)

    so typical of these people

    the "US right" tends to be a bit partisan, no?

    as if I should defend some worthless political hack like Hilary because she's a female Democrat SMH

    The absolute truth. This is why that hapless Hillary ho is totally unfit for the office of President of the US. Anyone who wants to vote for that criminal cunt should be committed into a psychiatric ward for all of 2016 or if they insist on supporting this bumbling bitch than they should be required to pay a $5000.00 poll tax before than can vote. There serious problem solved and the US is saved from that bimbo and her ass kissing sycophants.

    Perfect. I want tax cuts for the rich. Why? Because rich people create jobs. Didn't we just increase the Federal minimum wage?

    So, you get more money to perform unskilled work such as flipping burgers. No schooling required.

    How many poor people create jobs so that others might work? Answer: zero.

    Intead of complaining about how "The man is holding you down", why not ask yourself: "Hey, how do I become this man?"

    Answer: work harder than the next guy and make it happen for yourself.

    Jesus H. Christ....

    Tax the poor = capitalism
    Tax the rich = communism

    That's the Republican mantra. And rich people don't create jobs. They outsource them to third world countries to improve their bottom line. Jobs are created locally, by small and medium businesses.

    Time to read the article and speak to its points instead of tossing insults.

    I have talked to business owners in wealthier areas of my city. They talk about all the things they have off-shored and looking for people to support and fix errors done by those off-shore. The job creators I talk to do create jobs, in India where they don't have to pay them much. As far as gay Republicans, I just don't get it.

    It is a myth that only the rich are job creators. That was never true in the past and even less so now that we have transitioned from a manufacturing based economy to one based on financials. It's easier now to make money by transferring wealth through "investing" rather than creating wealth by adding labor to raw materials. A country that grows its economy through debt can only expect to see the downward mobility of the middle class.

    The people that create the most jobs in this country are not in the so-called One Percent, and make less money in a year than members of the Forbes 400 make in a day.

    The truth is that consumers are the real job creators. There are no jobs if there is no demand. There's no demand if there are no jobs. Etc.

    NBC also paid her $750K per year. For what I have no idea, but good for her.

    That's the old canard. A one day course in Econ 101 would quickly show you, that the rich do not create as many jobs as you think. If that was the case we would have full employment in the USA

    There are some people who are working two and three jobs to make ends meet or to "make it happen for themselves" as you claim. Why should they pay more in taxes when they can ill afford to do so.

    When you are in a position of power, you grant favors to your friends. In return, they pay you exorbitant amounts of money for such trivial things as giving speeches. Real estate is always a kindly gesture.

    Good God, typical liberal proletariat thinking. Play me the worlds smallest violin. I don't give a rats damn about your shitty childhood. I turned 13 in 1981. Remember what was going on at that time, gentlemen? Kind of a tough time to be gay, was it not?
    Guess what, life is tough. Don't rely on anyone to help you. Prince charming does not exist. YOU are your own prince charming.

    Listen: here in the United States (where I am from): public education is FREE. You can take advantage of that (as I did). How, might you ask?

    Answer: While my friends were fucking around in class... I was studying. While my friends were partying on the weekends and getting laid... I was studying.

    When I couldn't afford medical school: I joined the military. For free. Amazing how that works out.

    While my friends were spending their weekends at circuit parties and slamming meth....I was working.

    Now, some of them are dead. Others are broke and homeless.

    Guess what, gentlemen: I make good coin and have a retirement plan because I MADE GOOD CHOICES EARLY IN LIFE.

    Why in the name of God should I be forced to subsidize those people who chose poorly? I say, make them as comfortable as possible (in the cheapest way possible) and then allow them to expire.

    Harsh words? Absolutely! Will I receive about a zillion hateful responses? Absolutely! Please, bring it on. It won't change my position one iota.

    This is the real world, gentlemen. Embrace reality or get stepped on.

    Your choice.
