God and Class Warfare

Date: September 22, 2011

The hot phrase in Washington, D.C., this week  is "class warfare."

 

Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and a host of Republican presidential candidates have attacked President Barack Obama as a class warrior because he has suggested that the wealthiest individuals in the country, along with the largest corporations, should pay what he calls their "fair share" of the costs of both deficit reduction and putting Americans back to work.

Well, let's be clear: There really is a class war going on and the upper class is winning.
