War! Guess Who's Winning?
What is more disgusting than the shout of the wealthy that the liberals/progressives are engaging in "class warfare"?

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?
