Right-wing economics vacuums money out of the wallets of the middle-class and poor
And do you remember how trickle-down economics was sold to us by right-wingers? I do: We were told that if we gave gargantuan tax cuts to the wealthy, that the extra after-tax income of the super-wealthy would flow down to us, because of their magical, god-like investments, and our quality of life would soar. Just praise the holy "JOB CREATORS" we were told, and well-paying jobs will fall like manna from Heaven. But here we are, decades later, and I don't see the manna - just some stale crumbs of bread laying around. And yet still the worshipful wring their hands, and cry to the heavens with wide-eye devotion, "job creators! Job Creators!! JOB CREATORS!!!" Oh, how the billionaires must be loving it: "Damn! Look at those suckers! Still praising us and giving us tax breaks... after we've exported their jobs and run them into the ground! Ha!!"
The fact that so many tens of millions of Americans keep supporting the same plutocrats & policies that have eroded our quality of life for so many decades shows that we are truly a lost, delusional society. And only when we learn our history, and realize how the policies & infrastructure of the New Deal facilitated the rise of the middle-class, and the rise of the U.S. as an economic powerhouse, will we snap out of the delusion.
