Quote:


The GOP has pitched in to help by continuing their war on unions, cutting spending on the middle and lower classes,

and while shifting the tax burden from the 1% to us (by cutting income taxes and boost sales taxes, as they’re doing in the states).

It’s their vision of the future, as seen by Marco Rubio and Mike Lee proposing to eliminate all manner of taxes on the rich, sold as relief for “working families”.


Now Americans have slowly begun to see how the 1% has captured almost all the gains since ~1970 from our increased productivity, and calls for change are heard.

The 1% have given us their opening offer on reforms: nothing. They’re clear about this in their public speeches.
