War! Guess Who's Winning?

What is more disgusting than the shout of the wealthy that the liberals/progressives are engaging in "class warfare"?
CLICK FOR SOURCE and an article

There IS a class war going on, and the rich and powerful are winning. They have been winning for 30 years. But, they started the war.

Consider these political happenings.
1. Proposals to privatize (that means "end") Medicare.
2. Proposals to cut (that means, eventually, "end") social security.
3. Proposals and serious efforts to end "Obamacare."
4. The end of pensions, so far mostly corporate pensions, but also now probably public pensions.
5. The end of employer provided healthy care coverage.
6. Inflation of prices of food and energy.
7. Slashes to public school budgets.
8. Income tax cuts.
9. Huge budget deficits passed to the next generation.

Who do these steps benefit?

I just watched the wonderful movie " The Pianist" In it, some Jews in Warsaw , Poland ,volunteered to help the occupying Nazis in WW2 control the other Jews in the ghetto, thus gaining preferential treatment by the Nazis over their fellow middle and lower class Jews.
I find many simlarities between those volunteers and todays middle class Republicans who blindly support the new Republican governors and Republican US House of Reps in their attempts to denigrate the lower classes.
But I wonder where their preferential treatment will come from ?? Why in a nation of plenty do we do these things to ourselves ???
