Chart showing how Republican policies since 1980 have favored the rich and punished the lover and middle classes.

They told Americans that giving more to the rich would benefit everyone, because much of that extra money going to the rich would trickle down to everyone else in the country. But that didn’t happen. They rich got richer, and everyone else got poorer (thanks to stagnant wages and rising inflation).

Honest to Pete, you can’t make this stuff up:

What happened in Flint is what happens when you “run the government like a business.”

The business model of choice amongst those who would “run the government like a business” is invariably Enron.

Afterthought:

The cartoonist left out “racism.”

This is America.

Never leave out “racism.”
