"Changing the talk from 'wealth redistribution' to 'income mobility,' Republicans are trying to move the conversation away from the class warfare chatter of the Occupy Wall Street crowd to legislation that will get businesses to spend money. Ignoring criticism that he referred to Wall Street protesters as 'mobs,' Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Sunday that more important than his vocabulary is the growing frustration of too many unemployed Americans, and the need to encourage people at the top of the income scale to 'actually put their money to work to create more jobs so that we can see a closing of the gap.'" [editor's note: Linguistic gymnastics aside, this approach might actually work ... were more top-income folks awake enough to realize it! - SAT] (10/16/11)
