Forget about Meryl Streep. This is the real Margaret Thatcher, handing it to the socialists in Parliament:
The formulation she articulates here, that the liberal politician would rather the poor be poorer, so long as the rich aren't richer, is a perfect rebuttal to the Occupy Wall Street mob. Liberals are energized, not by sympathy for the poor, but envy toward the rich; they care less about making the lives of poor people better, and prefer to make demands and cast aspersions at those who have done well. A perfect example is the minimum wage law -- liberals are happy to enact a law that keeps poor young black men in our inner cities from getting paying jobs, so long as some "rich" man (or even some relatively poor person who owns a shop in the city) doesn't "exploit" them.
