  •  Notice how it started about 40 years ago? (5+ / 0-)

    Which was when the Republicans started running their long con. This is the result of the wealthy right wingers setting things up to funnel all the wealth to the already wealthy.

    As an example of what they did, they increased taxes on the working people when the Boomers were at their prime working people, so the Boomers would cover themselves with SS, but then continued those higher taxes on those coming after.

    They lowered taxes on the wealthy, while raising them on the working people, then borrowed huge amounts to pay for thing, driving up the debt, then screamed about it every time the Democrats got power to try to force them to lower what the working people got from the pooled money they put in.

    They are doing it now, trying to take away Social Security, Medicare, and other programs where working people pool their money together to help each other.

    It's all been a scam, a long con, to take everything the workers produce from the workers. It's been working.
