A very telling statement:
quote:"At a time when the economic downturn has left so many low- and middle-income families struggling to get by, we simply can't afford a wealth-building strategy that primarily helps those who are already wealthy," said Robert Giloth, a vice president at the Casey Foundation.
It's all a part of the erroneouseconomic philosphy that the economy is built from the top down, or "trickle down". This belief says that whatever is good for Wall Street is good for Main Street. Wall Street is the enemy of Main Street and the enemy of America. It needs severe reformation.
That will not happen as long as corporate America is the primary donor to BOTH political parties. We must first reform the campaign laws to eliminate corporate money all together from the political process. Only then can we address our political inequalities and repair the damage done to this country by these ravenous beasts.
