Republican Greed Now Dominates Americans' Lives
Thom plus logo It doesn't matter how many people die, struggle in poverty, or are poisoned, as long as the profits roll in and taxes are low.

In most developed countries homelessness is not a crisis, nobody goes bankrupt because somebody in their family got sick, and jobs pay well enough and have union pensions so people can retire after 30 or 40 years in the workforce and live comfortably for the rest of their lives.

But not in America. Republicans would never allow any of those things to happen.
