This isn’t recent news, but it’s a great quote by Bill Maher that is as relevant today as ever. The quote, also above: “If you’re a working-class American who still votes Republican … you’re stupid.”
More on that: “The moneyed elite in this country are dragging a bag filled with your future down the steps, and [the Republican base’s] reaction is, ‘Hold on there, that looks heavy. Let me give you a hand getting it into your trunk.'”
And one more: “It’s pathetically clear who’s killing the middle class, but you keep letting them get away with murder.”
The wealth gap between the richest Americans and the rest of us has been growing and growing in recent decades. Republicans have been instrumental in helping that to happen. But voters don’t seem to notice.
Here’s a lot more in video format:
