This is the core of why the rich supported Trump. He gave them massive tax cuts that the Middle Class is paying for.
This is the same reason they don’t want to make voting easier and fairer. As long as the super rich can buy off Faux News and scream that “someone else” is to blame for why our roads are crumbling and people die because they can’t get needed meds or healthcare, then this country is f*cked.
Help me take back the Republican Party – vote out anyone who supports Trump.

Argue with me in the comments if you disagree with my views.
Amazing how wearing a suit and having money changes perception…
Go ahead, make the candidates answer these questions. I bet all the right wing nuts will come up with reasons why this is actually a good thing.
Why would we need to save the middle class?
Trump will just build a wall to keep all the poor people out when the top 1% have taken everything for everyone.
I love the fact that Bernie is willing to say it. The wealth just keeps moving up to the top tier and the rest of us are left to fight for what’s left while the people in that top tier turn around and complain we need to cut basic services like healthcare and SSI.
And it makes perfect sense – if your a millionaire/billionaire. You don’t need to worry about how you are going to pay for you healthcare or retirement – so screw everyone else.
In the wake of the Amtrak accident a lot of right wing mouth pieces are calling for privatization of Amtrak.
So let’s just be clear what that means. They are going to take huge amounts of money from the federal government, then charge the passengers more (because hey, they have to “fix” it) and make a fortune while at the same time paying no taxes on it.
Privatizing Amtrak would have negative outcomes:
- Lesser traveled routes would get cut for the sake of profit.
- Higher volume but less profitable routes will get squeezed. And that means poor communities already struggling with the ability to get from where they are to where the jobs are are going to be hurt.
- Give money to the ultra rich. And this is what Privatization is really all about. The right wants to give more and more cash to their masters. And they will do anything to make it happen.
Follow the money and you’ll see they don’t really care about fixing anything. They cut Amtrak funding in the hopes that they can force it to crumble – and all so they can further justify Privatization efforts. It must be nice to be able to force something to crumble, then scream that the fix is to put the money and control in your pocket to fix it. When the problem was just your greed all along.
Support Hillary, save our country and the middle class!!!
