What... are you saying you think fraud is committed by hard-working self-supporting people?
They sure as hell ain't lazy if they are running fraud schemes... It takes a lot of hard work to run these schemes and not get caught. LOL. Here I thought you actually had some real way of quantifying your claims.... Fraud= lazy. My my my.

No. It isn't. The wealthy's share of income is DECLINING. I've posted proof of that.
