5. dog days were 8 of bushaloons
Get campaigns financed by public and kick corporations out of washington

$$$$$$$$$$$$ owns washington $$$$$$$$$

It is not a good Democracy when 1% own 21% and 10% own 71% of Total Individual Wealth in a nation

The Middle Class should down 70% of Wealth.

From 1946 to 1981 each percentile increased almost evenly in wealth and income on a percent basis.

Reagan began upward Redistribution.
Bush completed it.

They gave rich 2500 Billion in Tax Cuts which made many Ultra Rich.

They gave largest corporations a 40% tax cut.

They gave Wall Street Gamblers a free hand
to gamble any way they chose.

The biggest banks were covering $4000 bets with only $100 in the pocket. simple but accurate analogy.

700B inserted into their pockets by Taxpayers.

800B injection to try and get us out of Deep Deep Hole.

Rough times ahead for years.
