Given our horrific economic situation, I can’t help but trace the chain of events leading up to our current state of affairs. This sort of thing isn't created out of nothing – it comes from increments of change over a period of decades.
There were 3 times more money given in CEO bonuses last year than the entire debt in Greece.
For instance, GE made 10.8 BILLION DOLLARS IN PROFITS, BUT PAYED ZERO IN TAXES. You see, the profits were “international”, so they didn’t have to pay up. So, not only is the money not trickling down to you, they’re not even contributing their fair share in taxes.
If you’re okay with this, give yourself a pat on the back for not being a Commie. Rush Limbaugh and the guys at Goldman-Sachs would be really proud of you.
