A) Hope they can survive on their new lower net income
B) Give up on actually improving their life and rely on welfare forever
C) Commit fraud, lying about their increased income so that they are receiving more help than they need, taking available funds from families who actually need more, risking everything on the hope that they can actually escape the welfare trap before their fraud is discovered.
There is money to be made by keeping people poor and uneducated.
Don't get me started over how "we" are all fighting over bullsh*t that we were fighting about 10 years ago AND we'll still be fighting over 10 years from now. Meanwhile life becomes a real life version of Elysium for more and more people.
The Haves become a smaller group sitting at the Big Table with the whole damn pie and the Have Nots are so busy fighting over crumbs they don't realize they're eating off the floor.
One could be that they've accumulated so much wealth and power that they've effectively have removed themselves from our society. They now live in a wonderland of their creation where they've developed a belief that they can control every aspect of their existence and are immune to outside influence.
Secondly, if the system works for you then nothing could possibly be wrong with it and if you surround yourself with like minded folk it's that much easier to point and say that people who aren't as successful weren't bread for success, it's just genetics. Once you've started to see others as object instead of human beings you can easily do whatever your dark imagination can come up with. In this instance, they probably can't conceive of how the small minded little folk could possibly organize a revolt.
Third, Even if they were to run a study, I imagine that they are so convinced that they are in the right that it would be almost impossible to not suffer from a self fulfilling prophecy. They could interpret the data in a number of ways to get to the answer that they wan't and that is, the system works.
In the end, I truly believe that the oligarchs suffer from a form of mental disorder similar to hording. Instead of cats or news papers, it's capital. The outcome is the same though. They have become a burden on our society. It's unlikely that they'll come to this conclusion on their own and an intervention is in order, will that come in the form of revolution? Who knows. One thing is certain, the status quo can not continue. Change is going to happen, the question now is, will it be led by guns or by laws?
