  •  don't forget the attacks on pensions (8+ / 0-)

    they stole the pensions through their political lackies then turned around and claimed the workers had to sacrifice. Witness Christie having the gall to say the state's kids will suffer because there is no money due to pension obligations. The unmitigated gall, and there is the Brookings Inst ( a liberal think tank??!!) saying we need 401k's for public workers at the same time E Warren and others are pointing out what a fuckin failure those plans are. It makes me wanna scream.....!!!!!!

    •  Even if 401k plans are a failure (2+ / 0-)

      The calls to cut public pensions will only ever end when private workers have equivalent benefits.

        but you're probably too young to remember. The economic inequality we suffer under is no accident, it is a result of policies begun in 1980. That's the opinion of storied experts with Nobel prizes, not some shithead sitting at a Koch-funded libertarian "think tank" who cooks up inane ideas about the "free market" ( bow, genuflect, bless self )
