BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Day by day Kos on this date in 2011—Who’s waging class warfare?

President Obama needs to lift taxes on these making 1,000,000 or extra a 12 months, and the Republicans and their media stooges whine about “class warfare.” The Republicans kill President Obama’s jobs program, however that is not class warfare. And the framing is normal working process. It is normal working process for Republicans to answer requires truthful taxes by whining about supposed class warfare. It is normal working process for Republicans to do all they’ll to pay attention increasingly more wealth and energy within the arms of fewer and fewer with out anybody calling it what it’s. […]

These striving for some measure of social and financial justice imply to harm nobody. Creating some steadiness within the revenue hole and the distribution of wealth won’t trigger anybody to go hungry or homeless or to lack enough well being care. These utilizing each attainable means to disclaim some measure of social and financial justice are hurting folks. They’re intentionally and unconscionably perpetuating the causes of immeasurable pointless struggling. So who’s waging class warfare?
