Update: great video with Spacey:
“Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft, where we are hard, cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Rich Boy”
Republicans: the Party of the Rich hangs Sorry, We’re Closed sign on U.S.A.
The Undermining of The American Middle Class.
At a time when the richest people are becoming richer, what the Republicans say the answer is let us give millionaires and billionaires even more in tax breaks.
“At a time when the middle class is in decline and poverty is increasing, what our Republican friends are saying is, ‘let us attack virtually every significant program that improves lives for low income or moderate income people.'”
“Rich get richer, they get more. Poor get poorer, they get less. Maybe that sense of morality makes sense to some people.”
“It does not make sense to this Senator.”
“And I do not believe that it makes sense to the vast majority of the American people.”
~ Senator Bernie Sanders
