    This is what Republican Policies have brought to this country. As they work to block the president and the Democrats, it will only get worse. They admit they see corporations as "people". You know that one fat white guy who talked about "water skiing" is a Republican. Yea, his fat doughy self water skiiing? Sure.

    This is the real tragedy. If the right wingers on this board are any indication, they say, "helping these people is socialism". Besides, they're all drug addicts.

    USMB right wingers tend to stay away from these threads. When they do drop by, it's to leave behind some "insult", or they say, "We give more charity than anyone else".

    The right-wing is successfully reverting America to the Gilded Age -- the era of Robber Barons. The engine of the movement is greed and the fuel is the stupidity of those voters who are blind to what is happening and refuse to drive the clearly corrupt from the Congress.

    The only thing that can be done to change the direction America is moving in is exactly what FDR did, which is to substantially raise taxes on the wealthy and commence federal work programs such as the repair and renovation of our infrastructure, including the highways and the electrical grid. This will employ millions and give rise to many new industries.

    But there are millions of brainwashed right-wing water-carriers for the rich, most of whom don't have a pot to piss in, who will express outrage at the idea.

    Watch.

    I loled so hard hahahaha... Right down to where you said we need to do things like FDR... Raise taxes huh, why, what will that do and try and be specific? Give the Government more revenue so they borrow 100billion less out of the 1.6 Trillion they already have to borrow a year? What does MORE taxes actually do?

    Maybe you really want to relive the Great Depression lol. Inflation, control everything you can and fail… mass unemployment for long periods of time and people starving in the streets… Yes, FDR again please LOL.

    (Excerpt)

    This was hardly news, but Roosevelt used it to justify a series of dramatic soak-the-rich measures. Some, like the Revenue Act of 1935, were designed simply to raise statutory rates. Others, like the Revenue Act of 1937, tried to close egregious loopholes. And one, the Revenue Act of 1936, imposed a new tax on undistributed corporate profits, which supporters believed would curb tax avoidance among wealthy shareholders.

    As a group, the New Deal revenue acts of the mid-1930s substantially boosted the tax burden on rich Americans. According to Brownlee, the income tax changes alone raised the effective rate on the top 1 percent from 6.8 percent in 1932 to 15.7 percent in 1937.

    The depression began in 1929. FDR took Office in 1933. Look at the tax rates during that period. Also pay attention to the fact that the tax rates were highest during the periods of our greatest prosperity and lowest right before The Great Depression.

    Here's something else you should know (from the LA Times):

    (Excerpt)

    The big deficit facing the U.S. is mostly Republican in origin, the Congressional Budget Office says. The Bush tax cuts alone have added $3 trillion in red ink, yet the party wants to double down on its failed policy..

    So ending the Bush tax cuts on the rich is worth $3.3 trillion. I think you'll agree that's nothing to ignore.
