One of these days, somebody will explain why having “fewer billionaires” matters to all the average Joe in the street. And especially considering that the billionaires we have are pretty well split 50/50 between the two parties.

But it hasn’t happened yet — — at least not with hard data that actually means something. You hear sweeping statements about “well, billionaires THIS….”, and “billionaires THAT….”, but it’s all wishy-washy speculation about something that maybe might kinda possibly change in society if suddenly 607 individuals in a population of 320 million had only 999 million dollars instead of what they have.
