Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If in fact it is 2/3 of the population which will find fingers wagged intheir general direction, I agree wholeheartedly with your analysis, noting at the same time that much social regression in the US is predicated on small and powerless minorities of the populace (the sick, the poor, the battered, children, et c.) getting the shaft, and not large swathes of the white middle class (which would certainly be the case of we got to 2/3rds...)

If the pain hits the white middle class, then maybe we will see some movement. But, this being America we are talking about, we may not like the result.
