Government for the wealthy
If the American people would fight for their rights instead of fighting each other, the government would not keep stealing from them to funnel the wealth upward as they have been doing. Misleading statements about the Social Security trust fund being depleted have been perpetuated as a way to get us to allow private investors to gamble with our money, a dream of the right wing. Government agencies have also “borrowed” billions from the Social Security fund and have not been made to return it.
They want to use our money for other purposes. Perhaps instead of trillions going to wars all over the globe, some money can be spent on the majority of American citizens, rather than continuing to make cuts to all of our services.
Also, the government never put the taxes of the rich back to where they were before Ronald Reagan cut them, but instead continued to give the rich tax breaks for which we, the middle class, end up paying. In some states, pensions that people have worked for their entire lives are being cut or are lost, yet the tax breaks for the billionaires continue. We all need to direct our assertiveness to the elected officials instead of being aggressive to one another. The elected officials are supposed to represent the majority, not just the 1 percent, but they don’t.
