Will Hilary continue the "Trickle Down Recovery" for the 99%

Not that it hasn't worked out very well for the 1% - but as everyone in this country can tell you Work Class Wages have gone down - A LOT


Negative $4,019

The Obama years have been brutal on middle-class incomes.

The Presidential race is boiling down to one dominant issue: which party's policies will do more to help the financially stressed American middle class. President Obama's campaign theme is that Mitt Romney and the Republicans cater to the rich, while Mr. Obama cares about struggling families.

31. The working class screwed their own selfs.

They swallowed the corporate propaganda hook, line and sinker. You don't need unions to protect you; they are only using the dues from your hard work to enrich themselves. They bought the same propaganda and flocked to the polls to vote in Right to Work Laws that were solely designed to destroy unions. What did they get in return, massive outsourcing of jobs, pensions cut and their health insurance canceled.

There was an ancillary result that has proven to be devastating for the workers. The unions having been seriously crippled were unable to get progressive legislators elected to represent their interest. The only time that those running for office showed any interest in the unions causes was at election time to pick up the check. There is one and only way for the workers to recover, that is unionization. This will enable them to actually elect progressives that will represent their interest and the rightful distribution of the fruits of the labor. It is the only path to repel of tax laws that have impoverished the workers and enrich the 1% of parasites who are sucking the live blood out the workers. The issues that must be addressed span the entire spectrum from health care and greed pharmaceuticals companies to minimum wage laws, pensions, fair taxes, etc.

3. The 'recovery' was always an 'average'. On 'average', the economy recovered.

In reality, the Republican economic team Obama kept in place successfully guided the vast majority of the recovery to the wealthy, while the rest of us still stayed screwed, just maybe not quite as screwed. All the while proclaiming that we were 'saved' from disaster, while for most, we're still falling towards the ground, just more slowly. We'll still splat when we hit.

And perhaps you have not noticed how the union "leaders" so often do the bidding of the One Percent.

So although in theory you are right - the union members are not part of the One Percent (at least in terms of rank and file members) - so what are the union leaders getting as quid pro quo in not maintaining the high safety standards, in not seeing to it that people are adequately paid, etc?

21. "She has share (sic) just about everything" Please explain how you came to that conclusion.

On their tax returns for the years 2007 through 2014, the Clintons’ reported combined income of $139 million. Hillary Clinton said in a statement that she and her husband paid $43.9 million in federal income taxes and $13.6 million in state and local taxes over those years, for an effective total tax rate of 45.8 percent.

The couple contributed $15 million to charitable contributions over the last eight years, she said.



Read more here: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/article29711881.html#storylink=cpy

Let's see, 139 (earned) - 43.9 (taxes) = 95.1

95.1 - 15 (Charity) = 80.1 (million she kept for herself)

She shared approximately 10.8% of her pre-tax dollars. How does that become just about everything?

6. One problem I have with Obama and Hillary BOTH is that

neither one brings this reality to light. They don't point to this occurrence with the frustration and commitment to improve it that this situation deserves.

When they talk about a recovery while this economic fact is a reality they absolutely deserve some level of criticism that they face. The recovery benefitted a very small part of the American population, and the majority continued to lose economic ground. When Democrats don't point this out while simultaneously putting forth policies and solutions to turn this around, why should we have faith that they are fighting for our interests? It seems more likely they are trying to mollify, coddle, and snow us.

Not to mention that it weakens the Democratic brand with working class individuals. Politically aware conservatives are certainly aware of this economic reality. When Democrats don't raise holy hell about it, what are we to say when conservatives claim that liberals only care about the wealthy and not the working class? When our Party's leaders don't point this economic reality out consistently and angrily (by blaming the Republican Party for obstructing progressive solutions) conservatives that actually pay attention to politics are going to come to certain conclusions.

Ultimately, there is NO reason for working class Americans to support the Republican Party, but when Democratic Party leaders obfuscate this economic reality, what chance do they have to get working class conservatives to wake up and see that the Democratic Party is the party that will fight for their economic well-being?

9. Do you notice the uptick in wages at the end of your chart??

Do you know why it is there?

I'll explain it for you. The reason that is there is because wages will not go up until you a sustained low UE.

When UE is high and increasing, as it was on the day Obama took office, you have more workers competing for fewer jobs. Wages drop as a result.

Conversely, when UE is low, and stays that way, employers have to compete for a smaller number of better workers.

As one might expect, the WSJ attempts to blame Obama for a wage drop that's actually the result of the Bush recession.

And its not uncommon for the RW to attempt to shift the blame for this simple fact to Obama. And something some one from the left helps them carry that RW water.

So in answer to your question. Yes, we want to continue Obama's economy ... it's brought UE down to a point at which wages can finally begin to increase again.

18. You blame Obama, while carrying water for WSJ ...

... and ignored the fact that increases in wages require low UE, period.

Low UE is not about trickle down. It's about ensuring that there is enough cash moving through the economy so that demand for goods and services remain high.

The stimulus helped do that. Ending the tax breaks for those above 400k did that, extending UE insurance did that, the ACA does it too.

Now, if you think running against Obama is a good strategy for Bernie, by all means stuck with it. I'm sure you'll get lots of Obama supporters to switch by claiming Hillary is just as awful as Obama.

Please proceed.

The other thing to recognize ... with low UE, employers have to lure good employees away from other jobs. That process takes more time than the reverse, in which people who have been out of work JUMP at a low paying job just to get in the door.

For a number of years now, folks in the RW have pointed at that same trend line to claim the Obama economy is the problem. And I would explain that we would NOT see wages rise until UE fell to about 5%, and stayed there.

And that's exactly what has happened, and will continue to happen. Well, unless we let the GOP take control. They'll work to screw the economy up yet again.

82. My first thought too, really they are actually blaming Obama

for what was clearly an occurrence started in the Bush administration? SMH.

Certainly undeserving of honest discussion.

Let's just dispense with the board name and call it Anything You Want Underground.

83. Kind of ironic that "Wall Street" and its journal are

suddenly trustworthy! Isn't Wall Street the home of the corporations, the banksters and most importantly, the oligarchs?

35. It's all talk with Hillary

 

Her positions are always changing with the political wind. One has to look at her record to understand where she is coming from. And it ain't pretty.

41. It is not all talk

She has substantive policy proposals, FAR more substantive than Sanders.
Her voting record also bears little resemblance to how people here portray here. I would wager you haven't looked at that either.

You don't care about actual policy, so be it. Keep to the world of internet meme and soundbite. Frankly, I have come to expect nothing else. The link is provided for those who care about issues and policy rather than simply personality politics.

once elected. If you want to know what her actual, in office, policy proposals will be look at who funds her campaign. We don't need a replay of Obama's broken promises.

HRC like Obama is owned by Wall Street. There will be no relief here. I really don't know most democrats are expecting out of Hillary. Her record is clear and in line with republican economic policies. It's amazing how many are blindsided by this.

38. Attention party loyalists: The point of this thread is that the status quo is NOT OK.


Never mind that Bush and the Repugs crashed the economy. It's been 8 years, and why haven't incomes recovered???

Could it be that our fearless leaders in the Democratic party are following a pro-free-trade, anti-union, neo-liberal, capitalist agenda not all that different from the evil Repugs?

Sadly, this is exactly what's been happening. Which is why we want new leadership. We don't want more of the same Wall Street cronyism.

Not to mention the job security for the troops with a neo-lib prez.

46. Here comes the TPP - the biggest corporate welfare program since ACA and NAFTA. We love CEOs!

Meanwhile, my insurance premiums are going up another at least another 10% this year with reduced benefits. There are indications the company is going to drop insurance benefits for employees in next 2 or 3 years. Of course wage are frozen on the account of the bad economy.

Oh, and vacations. Company is investigating taking them away. Yep. Here's how it works... company is going to say they have unlimited vacation time (unpaid, with manager approval).

Guess what? No one takes them because if you do, you get written up on your performance review!

If you are Clinton-class rich, you have the world at your finger tips.

America - of the rich, by the rich, for the rich.
