The New Gilded Age 0
Michael in Norfolk argues that today’s Republican Party is quite happy to see the return of–nay, to usher in–the New Gilded Age. Here’s a bit from his post (emphasis added):
I have an even bigger problem with politicians – i.e., Republicans – who want to slash the social safety net (as well as Social Security and Mediare) so they can fund ever larger tax breaks to the very wealthy. Indeed, it’s as if they want recreate the era of the robber barons of the Gilded Age . . . .
I cannot find a way with which to take issue with his remarks, he said convolutedly.
