Socialismo para os ricos, livre concorrência para os pobres

"In public services, we lag behind all the industrialized nations of the West, preferring that the public money go not to people but to big business. The result is a unique society in wich we have free enterprise for the poor and socialism for the rich. This dazzling inequity is reflected in our tax system where the man on salary pays more tax than the man who lives on dividends, who in turn pays more tax than the wheeler-dealer who makes a capital-gains deal."

Gore Vidal - United Sates, Essays 1952-1992
