Supply Side Economics Running on Empty --Additional

Just in case you needed proof that the rest of us haven't done so well in wage increases, here it is.

Also, just to review, let's consider the overall scorecard: Greedy speculative bankers, making a ton of money, caused the Great Recession. Nobody of note involved went to jail for it. We, on the other hand, took it in the ass, financially speaking. And, as the economy has been crawling along, not quite so down any more, but not growing much to speak of either, the one percent's share of the largess the government doled out in free cash to get things going again is by far the biggest.

So. What do a significant number of us decide to do as a solution to "Make America Great Again?" Nominate a millionaire huckster as their Presidential Candidate!

Man, have they got selling us on BS down pat. It's a wonder that, as so many of us bend over again without any question, they aren't also saying: "Please sir, may I have some more?"

What Recovery? Americans Missed Out While the 1 Percent Cleaned Up
