Awesome Quote of the Day

"There is nobody in this country that got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you!

But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads that the rest of us paid for. You hired workers that the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built the a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea- God bless. Keep a big hunk of it.

But part of the underlying social contract is that you take a hunk of that and pay it forward for the next kid who comes along."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren
