"The class warfare is over -- we lost," Kucinich said before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "I want to make that announcement today. Working people lost. The middle class lost."
"All across this country people are starved for capital," Kucinich said. "Small businesses are failing, you have shopping centers that are becoming vacant because people can’t afford the rents anymore because the people who own the malls the developers are getting cash calls and credit is tightening."
"The separation between the finance economy and the real economy is real. This is not some fake idea. You can’t call that class warfare. That’s a fact."
"The wealth of this nation is being accelerated upward," Kucinich said. "That’s one of the problems that I had with the bailout."
"You could say that it helped stabilize the American economy, but what I see is the separation between the real economy and Wall Street.

Is all a plan to make people more willing of the scraps that will be given for anybody to be glad of the upper classes coming to the rescued of the lower classes.

People will do anything for a buck.
The next step of the banking system is to used our own tax payer money to give needed loans to small businesses with not ties from the Federal Reserve but with all the taxes and interest to us on our own tax payer money, the banks will make all the profits and will lose nothing.
What is happening in this nation is dirty and obscene but people are to a point that they will beg for more of the same just to get a scrap of bread that they think is given for free.
