    What a crock. Biden is in the hip pockets of those whose bidding he did that enabled so much wealth to be concentrated in the hands of so few in the US. How can it be more "two tier" than one percent owning as much wealth as the other 99%. By letting them steal the last of it too.

    The people who are ready to fight those whom Biden helped acquire all this wealth he calls reactionaries and demagogues were once called American Revolutionaries and Patriots. He and most of the US government are King George III. There will be the same outcome.
