Chepe: Researchers say eating spicy foods may extend your life. Pepe: Ah, that explains a lot. Now I know why Donald Trump sent us a case of ketchup.
@cepaI suppose you haven’t heard the word “gerrymandering”? It’s why the courts are currently forcing Florida to redraw its electoral maps.
And yes, both Republicans and Democrats have been writing tax laws favoring the rich particularly since Reagan set that into motion. Except that when the 2007–2008 financial crash happened, Democrats voted to ease the tax burden on the middle class and put a teeny-weeny bit back onto the wealthy. Since which point the wealthy have gone ballistic, and the Kochs have poured hundreds of millions into defeating Democratic candidates. Oh, and the Democrats managed to get the Affordable Care Act passed, which also does not favor the rich, but does very much help poor and middle-class folks. (Well, except the poor folks who are out of luck because they live in a Republican-ruled state that has refused the Medicaid expansion because that would be to violate the purity of Republican ideology. And help poor folks. Which amount to the same things for the GOP.)
But I suppose your arguments about this mean that you think the rich have gotten too much, and the poor and middle class not enough? If so, welcome to the club!
