The Economy Is No Excuse.

I’m really getting sick and tired for the economy being used to dismiss every batshit crazy thing that has happened in the last few years. The Republican party has repealed collective bargaining rights for public employees, imposed police state conditions on minorities, held the unemployed–and now the entire government–hostage to pass taxes for the rich, and making sure that the states behave, as Paul Krugman put it, like 50 little Hoovers.


How is it that these people are able to do damage no matter who wins elections?
