The democrat Party, blooded, morally bankrupt and out of ideas, set to coronate a corrupt grandmother to run for president in 2016 have come up with their catch phase du jour for the immediate future. The phrase President Obama used in his
Spreading of Manure State of the Union Speech was, "The Middle Class Economy" (I hear "A Turd in Every Pot" came in a close second). The democrats, after opening up the national treasury first to Wall Street and then to the unproductive of society, will now save the middle Class! And out front in this valiant endeavor is none other then two of our favorite left-wing loons.
Earlier this week, the darling of the far left, Sen. Elizabeth 'Fauxcahontas' Warren and fellow Legislative Rep. Elijah " is this microphone on " Cummings launched their new Middle Class Prosperity Project, because they are a couple of democrats who really care about you and would like to see you prosper.
Warren kicked off the first in a series of forums on the middle class and how Big Government can do all matter of good progressive thingies to save it before it is too late and the GOP drowns it forever in a bathtub.
So let us swoon, together, at Warren professorsplaining it so nice and sweet and making it so easy for all of us to understand:
Now let us look at liz's splanation of the situation:
"For decades after the Great Depression, America built a middle class that was the envy of the world. Everyone shared in our economic growth. From 1935 to 1980, 90 percent of America’s families — that is, everyone except the top 10 percent — got 70 percent of all the income growth in that 35 years. It was a formula that worked. As our country got richer, our families got richer. But starting in the 1980s, something changed. It happened partly because of deliberate choices made right here in Washington. The choice to tax assembly line workers and teachers at higher rates than billionaire hedge fund managers."Oh Lizzy, a Democrat named John Kennedy cut top tax rates from 91% to 70% and created one of the largest expansions of the American economy in the post WW2 economies and saved his family a buttload in the process........and passed by a Democrat controlled congress. Ronald Reagan cut top tax rates to 39%......passed by a democrat controlled congress, and also created a booming economy your party is still secretly envious of. Middle income tax rates, adjusted for inflation have gone down since 1981.
Check federal expenditures on non-productive, non-taxpayers, Ms. warren.
"The choice to cut support for higher education and leave students with massive debt.Liz. Liz Liz....The skyrocketing cost of higher education is because universities pay professors like you high salaries (like your Harvard gig paying $350,000 to teach one class) to write books and research papers no one reads instead of teaching the students, and building sports facilities for coaches who make millions of dollars. It is not the taxpayers responsibility to finance private education to institutions with billions of dollars in endowments. Taxpayer funding for college educations should be reserved for veterans and high preforming disadvantaged students.
"The choice to gut funding for infrastructure and basic science research that grows the economy and and saves lives. All while giving corporations fat tax breaks for moving jobs overseas."Lizzy, we spend almost as much on Research and Development as Europe and Japan combined. And do I have to remind you of all the money that has been thrown down the hole on Scam Solar Energy Research Companies financed by a recent democrat controlled congress? And ask your boy Barack what happened to the research at NASA that he de-balled in favor of financing green energy.
As for giving tax breaks for corporations to move jobs overseas, see the North American Trade Agreement and video of Democrat Bill Clinton signing the treaty.........approved by a democrat controlled congress. The jobs go overseas because of one of the highest global corporate taxes rates. Lower it, they come home. The dirty little secret democrats don't face up to is, your union buddies have killed more job growth in this country then taxes, but we won't talk about that.....
"Recently Republicans seem to have discovered the struggles of America’s middle class. Out of nowhere, they’re suddenly talking about this problem. Well that’s great, but talk is cheap and when it comes to action. I’ll believe Republicans care about what’s happening to America’s middle class when they stop blocking legislation that would require billionaires to pay taxes at least at the same rate that teachers and firefighters do."The top 1% still pay 50% of all taxes payed. And most people who vote republican are middle class. The middle class thrived in this country until.....oh..... a community organizer decided he would follow a proven failed economic philosophy that has kept the economy in the ditch and doubled the debt. And May I remind you 8 of the 10 most wealthy counties in the country voted overwhelmingly for Obama....twice!
"I could go on, but the point is the same: Talk is cheap. It’s time for action — action that will strengthen America’s middle-class families and build a strong future, action that will produce good jobs now and in the future. It is time to put up or shut up."Yes Ms. Warren, talk is cheap. After 30 years of federal mandates pushed on the states and municipalities, causing higher taxes at the local level, interfering and driving up cost of everything from education, healthcare and commerce, to making it difficult for small business to grow, don't patronize us by acting like you, your party and your bald headed moron sidekick now actually care about the middle class.
Much like democrat women say about your mythical War on Women, "men just don't understand", well I say what would someone who lives in a $5.4 million mansion' understand about the struggles of the Middle class or the foot on their neck???
