Robert Reich: Why Taxes Have to Be Raised on the Rich (Video)

AMERICAblog readers already know that the Republican tax plan has been fleecing America, so pass this around to others.

Robert Reich remains one of the few solid voices of liberalism in the US, and we need to keep supporting him so he’s part of the discussion.

The Republicans have talked about class warfare in recent years, and yes, they’ve been half right. The problem is, they pointed the finger at the wrong class-warfare warriors. It’s the rich who have been sinking the country and waging war on everyone else.

Papa John’s pizza CEO John Schnatter is only one of the more recent examples of such warfare, but there are plenty of others, including the now irrelevant Mitt Romney.

    Heh. That’s really funny.

    Krugman isn’t even invited to any of the White House dinners, and Obama’s aides cover their mouths and scratch themselves when Bernie Sanders shows up.

    Aye… But then again, they’re not neo-liberal corporatists which is why none of the Powers That Be ever listen to them. Gets in the way of parasite-profits.

    You mean, the Democratic tax plan? Obama was the last person to sign the last tax plan.

    I’m sure it is only pure coincidence, and not any kind of educated analysis, that Reich and Krugman have both been right in predicting how almost every single fiscal decision would impact us in the long run. Boy, them and Nate Silver, golden boys of magical predictions.

    If there was any progressivism to be found in the Democratic party and its leadership, Reich would be Treasury Secretary and Paul Krugman the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.
