"I have nothing against rich people... but what made America great is theMost Liberals, depending on the venue, vacillate between their canned adoration of the middle class and the poor as they who built America. What a crock of crap. Americans of all economic levels built and made America great, and yes, rich people are included.
Class warfare as a political tool.
Clinton credited the union movement with building the middle class. She
said she thinks it should be easier to join unions and said she supports a
union-supported method of organizing called "card check."
The union is negotiating its contract with MGM Mirage, Harrah's
Entertainment and other casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. The group's presidential
endorsement is expected to be key to winning Nevada January 19 Democratic
Using "card check" intimidation instead of the secret ballot is a great way to build the middle class. It is kind of like "You'll eat your spinach and like it" except my parents didn't use weapons and violence on me.
I'm sure that Senator Clinton knows these economic figures, but like all progressives she
The real tax increase is the swelling federal and state budgets that now underwrite expenditures of seemingly everything and everyone except the middle class and the rich, but with her socialist style health/welfare system, Senator Clinton hopes to buy the votes of the middle class. The tremendous rise in medical and medicine costs can be directly pinned to the extraordinary rise in governmental regulation, legislation and interference and lawsuits filed or threatened.
It's as if there is a coordinated plan to increase the cost of necessities to allow for an increase of governmental oversight and bureaucracy which means more tax increases all to make the government more indispensable. This all comes at a cost of making citizens powerless to control all of this largess and the departments that control it. As an experiment, try reading and tracking earmarks or any state or federal department's budget. Begin there. If you can get the information.
The real issue of "class warfare" as a political tool is that when it is successfully used the losers are the middle class and the working poor and the only winner is government and the bureaucrats that run it. That includes senators and representatives.
