If you want me to state the obvious, that Dems have had plenty opportunities to correct the hideously wide wealth imbalance, so be it, they have, no question, and failed.Wow! Real objective there Jack.
But I make no apologies for rating Trump and the current GOP as particularly disgusting.
Even leaving aside their "conservative" lean, they ream the very people who elect them.
The GOP con their core voters with issues that will have little positive impact on their livelihoods, Guns and God.
But the real damage they do to these people (and voters in all states) is their phony war on high tax.
You cannot have a mature discussion in American politics about the wisdom of raising taxes to provide better (but most particularly, fairer) living conditions.
Standing in a district in Alabama with crumbling schools and services and you suggest maybe raising local taxes a bit, and you are dead in the water.
"My communist Democratic rival now wants to turn this patriotic and all American district into Venezuela and send your hard earned tax dollars to Nancy Pelosi to give to her Hollywood pals"
So they vote for some racist scumbag who votes in DC for trillion dollar tax cuts for mega corporations who are already hoarding trillions of dollars in pure cash on their balance sheets, while the dopes he conned into voting for him watch their schools and services crumble further.
So ye, Dems have sure played their part, but the GOP's template is vile and if it continues, the wealth gap is going to get even more obscene.
How can any country make any credible claim of greatness with a falling life expectancy rate in 2018?
In terms of first world countries, it is the class dunce hat for certain.
Leaving war aside, there are a myriad of reasons why a country might have a falling life expectancy, but make no mistake the overriding one is poverty.
Quite simply, very large portions of America's people are poor by almost any definition, and most certainly by comparison to almost any other first world country.
In the GOP those people will never do any better, the GOP believe the wealthy must be allowed almost all the spoils because they drive everything
