No longer can a Republican run for president without admitting that the government must do something about our nation’s most pressing problems — but neither can he ask his friends in the One Percent to pay for it. Thus is born a new slogan: We win, you pay!
Ross looks around at his fellow One Percenters and sees their education and assumes that’s how they got there. It’s like the old joke about the guy who was born on third base and assumed he’d hit a triple.
While the Bush administration plunged us into two wars and cut taxes on the rich, Republicans in Congress were blocking every Democratic attempt to give the VA the funding they needed to give our veterans the medical care they were promised.
The market is rigged, and the public has been lied to about the investments they’re making.
Freedom requires more than the absence of laws and taxes. True freedom of choice requires the capability to make that choice — and the free market doesn’t always give us that capability.
