Monies that should have been reinvested in America for health care, first responders and the nation’s infrastructure have been blithely given away to the GOP’s super rich benefactors. Therefore we see a filthy rich nation with its wealth piling up on corporate sidelines and in foreign bank accounts while much of the America slides into third world conditions. Trump’s goal seems to be to accelerate the widening divide between the rich and everyone else.

We need another Teddy Roosevelt to put things back in balance.
