What Working-class and Poor White People Need to Understand About Rich White People
Jonna Ivin-Patton

We have to get the vote out to fix the rich from slinging bullshit at us. Like giving the super rich tax breaks and expecting it to reach the common citizenry. It’s nothing different than the Reagan administration did in the 80’s. It didn’t work then and it isn’t working now. It is the trickle down theory, but nothing trickled down to us. It DID trickle into overseas banks and other tax havens for the super rich, AKA ,the Waltons, Kochs, etc. Yes,including the trumps !!

Reagan also took away our ability to deduct interest rates from our use of credit cards for tax purposes.This was to satisfy his rich campaign contributors. Very hurtful to middle class folks & the poor. He did not care! There is no reasoning behind this except one- greed ! Sorry- heartless greed !! I still can’t understand why a lot of GOPers still worship him.

I feel that, in todays’ political environment , people are onto these kind of greedy tactics with trump in office. Your article recognizes that and is greatly appreciated .

I feel that the answer is Sen. Bernie Sanders. He seems to understand the system well, also what’s wrong with it. Medicare for all, free tuition for those that can’t afford it, getting out of the Middle East-a war based on lies, embracing solar & wind power, I could name more. The deal here is that he is for all these people who are getting screwed into the ground by the ubet-rich who are running this country for their own greed !!

Your article explains this very well. I thank you for it.

Go Bernie !!
