The rich steal their wealth from those who use to be middle class. The rich take the sales from people who use to be able to sell their products and support their families on those sales. They use our federal government to consolidate those sales for them.

When the USDA changed how they allocated school lunch program funding, they forced schools to buy their purchases And those purchases are 90% from big corporate farms and food processors. Now the big corporations sell their products, hard tasteless tomatoes and chicken nuggets, to the schools where small farmers use to get those sales. Now only the filthy rich owners of those corporations get that money where before it use to support 100s of farmers and their family members. Now those farmers are all in poverty.

But the USDA never mentioned how the change in funding would put so many farmers into poverty. The GOP knew, the USDA administrators knew. They just didn't bother to tell anyone. Now those farmers, living in abject poverty are conned into voting for the same people who made them poor.

Keeping the filthy rich's secrets is now part of our federal governments job.
