48. I didn't say the top 10% is middle class; I said the middle class are the ones invested in 401(k)s.

Your crusade against 401(k)s isn't going to disturb the rich in the least. The rich have much more lucrative pursuits than some piddling 401(k).

I don't know what you imagine happening to $9 trillion in worker retirement accounts but you're only going to piss them off if you start making eyes towards their money and if you force their money out of the markets then you will be forcing the companies they work for to give up $9 trillion in capitalization. There is no economy in the world that can withstand a $9 trillion de-capitalization. The workers you profess to champion would all be out of jobs and the politicians that made it happen would all be hung from the nearest streetlamps.
