The top one percent of Americans are receiving the largest share of national income since 1928. That's before the Great Crash that started the Great Depression. The rich are playing with fire here. They're heading the American middle and lower classes into extremely tight financial times while they, the rich, live higher and higher off the hog.
The people aren't as easily corralled as the wealthy seem to think. The rich are playing into the hands of those who will call for violent uprisings to take back what the wealthy have conjured into their own hands. It's dangerous and foolish.
