@RBReich: So let me get this straight: Mitch McConnell has no problem exploding the deficit to cut taxes for the wealthy and corporations, but he complains about the deficit when it comes to rebuilding America’s infrastructure?

@scottsantens: If you’ve never read the book “Charlatan,” this guy is straight out of that history. He’s today’s version of John R. Brinkley, getting wealthy off of lies that are killing people just as Brinkley killed people with his lies.

@RBReich: How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations? Because that’s who they are.

@scottsantens: So stop complaining about inflation and start demanding that those with lower and middle incomes get enough monthly basic income to nullify inflation so that only the wealthy see reduced buying power because of any inflation.Also, focus on increasing supply vs reducing demand.

@RBReich: Trickle-down economics is nothing more than a cruel hoax designed to enrich the wealthy and billionaires at the expense of the American people.

@RBReich: Don’t be fooled. When it’s aid to poor families, Mike Lee calls it “welfare.”When it’s billions in tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, he calls it capitalism.

@BernieSanders: At a time of massive wealth and income inequality and when half our people are living paycheck to paycheck, what the reconciliation bill will finally do is address the needs of our working families by asking the wealthy and large corporations to pay their fair share of taxes.

@BernieSanders: For years and years, Republicans have told us that if we just cut taxes for the wealthy and corporations, working people will share in the prosperity. Wrong. Trickle-down economics is a fraud. It’s time for corporations to finally pay their fair share in taxes.
