  •  Progressive policies help everyone (3+ / 0-)

    Progressive policies help the poor and middle-class, but they also help everyone. A society without poverty and people dying for lack of healthcare is a healthier society for everyone. A fair and functioning economic system is better for everyone except for thieves and fraudsters -- and why would we want to help them? Compromising with greedy, selfish, self-centered racist jerks is not good for anyone -- even for them.

    Just look at how good things were for the wealthy throughout the 1950s and 60s. Everyone is now working harder and is less happy.
