Well you got one thing right. The super rich whores don’t plow their money back into the economy, causing money volosity to fall like a rock. But it is the Republicans that work night and day to see to it that the nation’s wealth is shoveled upstairs. It is they with their trickle down, voodoo economic crap (and lets get rid of all the regulation so that the fat cats can run the economy into a ditch while they then run off with the profits) that kills the average joe.

This cycle of Republicans plundering the econmy and Democrats fixing it has been going on even before the Great Depression of the 1930s. That is the practical basis for the truism that says if you want to live like a Republican, vote Democratic. Yet folks like you keep shooting yourselves in the foot by supporting the Republican Wall Street shills.

And, yes, Bill Clinton got his hands dirty in this way, too. But for the most part it is the Republican pigs that screw the average guy and then cover their tracks by employing campaigns of tribal fear of the “other” that sucks old White guys back into their camp.
