  •  Until trickle-down economics is publicly (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    gjohnsit, kurt

    executed, the trendlines on those charts will not change.

    The death of trickle-down economics would:

    1) Reverse the social acceptability of executives and the investment class to take an ever-increasing, gluttonous piece of the pie. Establish guidelines for executive compensation, including parachutes, especially for executives leaving companies that are performing poorly.

    2) Re-establish a truly progressive tax system, based on effective tax rates (AMTs) as much as stated tax rates.

    3) Create public mindshare for developing the living wage.

    4) Establish trade policies that not only protect domestic wages but global wages, labor practices, working conditions, and environmental policies.

    Purging predominantly minority voters and requiring them to present IDs to vote in the face of VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT VOTER FRAUD is RACISM! I hereby declare all consenting Republicans RACISTS until they stand up and object to these practices!
