42% of the millionaires in a recent Fidelity survey don’t feel wealthy. Seriously.
Maybe they should talk to the folks in Minnesota whom the GOP wants to prohibit from having more than $20 in cash in their pockets, or the family and friends of the Costa Mesa CA maintenance worker who committed suicide after getting a layoff notice.
As Paul Krugman noted, these are “the forgotten millions” — not to be confused with the poor, suffering millionaires. Poor babies. Poor, sad, miserable, suffering, pitiable babies.
