Conservative politicians turn backs on poor

Success - Article sent! close

To the surprise of no one, the National Bureau of Economic Research announced in its brilliance that the more higher tax rates are cut, the greater share of the national income is accrued by the wealthiest citizens. This is demonstrated with the United States being No. 1 and the United Kingdom being No. 2 in this research.

It's axiomatic to say that the rich cannot spend all their money on consumer products, but when they do, it's for high-priced stuff like foreign cars, artwork, furniture and the like. Without a doubt, few of the conservative politicians and the wealthy are not interested in how many kids go to bed hungry at night in the United States. They continue to pay homage to the gun and war industries and turn their backs on the needy. While they rally against abortionists (which I agree with), they turn their backs on those who live in squalor and undernourishment and proffer the theory that if "they" want to get work, they could.
