They will continue to try to make the debate about "pitting groups against one another" and "hating the successful." For once in our lives, Democrats need to be out there first with facts and statistics and pictures to show the insulated that this is about the systematic impoverishment of our middle class despite record corporate profits.

Bernie Sanders gave a richly detailed speech a month or so ago, documenting the siphoning of money from poor and middle class to the rich, and detailing, with facts and statistics, the changes that have occurred over the past 20 years in wealth distribution and where the money goes.

We need quick and easy access to this information, and it needs to be seen EVERYWHERE.

Don't let them frame this. We need strong, persistent voices and facts, stories, pictures to back them up.
