“But … but … but … CLASS WARFARE!!!”

Chris Bowers of the Great Orange Satan:

As you read this, rich and powerful people in Washington, DC are trying to determine not whether they should cut programs designed to help low and middle-income Americans, but by how much they should cut those programs. The rich and powerful people in DC are making these cuts in order to pay for tax breaks they recently gave to rich people and large corporations. Additionally, the cuts are being made at the behest of the lobby organizations and media operations owned by rich people and large corporations.

If that isn’t a class war, I don’t know what is.

If it quacks steals from the poor and middle class to give to the rich, it’s class warfare. And if it refuses to provide basic health care to poor people, guts workplace and environmental safety regulations, buys off government regulatory agencies and insulates itself from accountability under the guise of “tort reform,” all while enjoying the lowest tax burden in more than half a century and pretty much all of the income gains in the past 40 years, it might not be genocide, but it  certainly sees genocide as an aspirational peer.
