Everything is working according to plan

First, cut taxes for the rich. Second, use the increased wealth to bribe legislators. Third, cut funding for education to further dumb down the people. Fourth, broadcast right wing propaganda around the clock on a fake news channel. Fifth, bust unions and ship jobs overseas to weaken and disenfranchise the people. Sixth, increase the prison population, preferably with people of color. Seventh, deregulate the banks in order to fleece the public treasure. Finally, use the deficits created with tax cuts for the rich and two wars of choice to cut important government programs when they are needed the most.

Ah, yes, it took 30 years, but what started with Reagan has finally paid off big for the top 1%. Everyone else? Tough luck.
