While “we the people” are encouraged to be ever more partisan and fuss with each other, the less-than-one-percent continue to drain us all dry.
Glenn Greenwald Salon 09/14/09
Who are the undeserving “others” benefiting from expanded government actions?
“…..This is the paradox of the tea-party movement and other right-wing protests fueled by genuine citizen anger and fear. It is true that the federal government embraces redistributive policies and that middle-class income is seized in order that “someone else benefits.” But so obviously, that “someone else” who is benefiting is not the poor and lower classes — who continue to get poorer as the numbers living below the poverty line expand and the rich-poor gap grows in the U.S. to unprecedented proportions. The “someone else” that is benefiting from Washington policies are — as usual — the super-rich, the tiny number of huge corporations which literally own and control the Government. “
