Ok, I can agree with that but when you say it's a war on the wealthy I can't agree with that perspective because it's more then that. It's unrelenting greed that's bringing the country to its knees.
Look around and tell me, wouldn't you agree that trickle-down economics has failed?
Created by the Clintons? Wow your revisionist history skills are impressive. You do realize it was the neocon Jesus named Ronald Wilson Reagan who initiated supply side economics AKA trickle down economics?

Since 'tax breaks don't work' then everyone should give them up.
The evil rich get them.
The middle class gets them.
The poor gets them.
Business gets them.
Hell there isn't anything in this country that does not get tax breaks.
And for the record trickle down is working just fine, and dandy just ask China.
Where billions of dollars are currently being invested.
Biggest reason why that is ?
Is because it is too expensive to do business in this country anymore.
Which is why it is cheaper to buy 'made in China' products made 10,000 miles away, and shipped here than the same things being made 1 mile from where a person lives.
But Clintons comments are especially 'rich' FTW since she is an evil 1% worth over 100 million dollars between her and her 'husband'.
And we all know since the war on poverty began trickle up economics isn't working.
Think about this when people bring up the economy.
When people are spending more money buy corporate products corporations make MORE money.
The CLintons sure do have a hipper rap than the evil right.
But it is just as FASCIST.
Working fine in china ?? Is that the economy you want ??
You must be on big business side, thats the only way your post makes any sense

Why anyone believes anything that comes out of this woman's mouth at this point is beyond me.
She will say anything, ANYTHING, even irrelevant diarrhea such as this.
Yes they all do, but at least some of them are likeable. Oh and... BENGHAZI.

No I do not think trickle down economics works for the majority, and I think Hillary Clinton would continue the system that is working for the 1%.
I don't believe that, as most democrats hope to see the survival of the middle class.
You think the republicans have majority's interest at heart? I honestly can't fathom why anyone would believe that. ?
No matter which one of the major parties one votes for, the politician that is elected represents corporate / lobbiests interests, not the interests of the public.
Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.
In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power.
