Is pointing out Republican rich-guy class warefare against the poor class warfare?
Paul Ryan’s new budget attempts to kill Obamacare for the 36th time since it passed, making sure that 31 million Americans that will gain healthcare coverage thanks to that law don’t get it. But it keeps the Medicare cost savings that Ryan and Romney railed against in their campaign. He plans to voucherize Medicare, leaving 80 and 90 year old seniors to shop on the open market for private, for profit health insurance. And he wants cuts to Social Security. He’s doing all this not to balance the budget right away but using the cuts to help pay for additional tax cuts for the rich.
Income and wealth disparity are now greater than they have been in the USA since just before the Great Depression, but apparently Republicans think the poor are just too few in number and not poor enough. If wealth equaled property, here’s how the US would be divided up. How much do Any Rand acolytes like Paul Ryan think the wealthiest 1% have to own before they have won the class war the Republicans have declared on their behalf?
I’d just like to note that this isn’t the 1% vs. the 99%. There are plenty in the 1% who agree with Warren Buffett that they should carry their fair share of the load of rebuilding America. This is a clash of political ideas, not classes, isn’t it?
