Taxes on the rich are the lowest or close to the lowest in a century (radically useless reductions.) All but the rich are taking home less than half of what they did in 1970 with the rich stealing the difference, but not being able to spend it to keep the economy going. Profits are at a record high. People are 4x more productive and working more than anyone else in the developed world but these people insist Americans aren’t working enough and wages need to be lowered and taxes reduced further. The are trying to bankrupt, impoverish and enslave the majority of Americans with their economic terrorism known as austerity. Its part of their plan to eliminate the middle class, bring us all down to one dollar An hour, down to the global minimum wage because as Buckley sais the middle class is a threat to the wealthy and needs to be pushed into poverty in service of the rich.
Paris Hilton could have done a better job than W. or these criminal idiots. Social mobility is gone. Any kind of life security has been replaced by debt and wage slavery. These criminal Republican idiots need to be stripped of all the wealth they stripped from others (that’s all of it) and placed behind bars so they can’t do any damage and cease to be able to place everyone’s lives and livilihoods at risk with their terror.
Lets flush the current parasitic crop of wealthy slackers. That is what Sanders should have in mind:
