How else do you explain his alleged anti-wealth concentration stance with his approval of the Trans Pacific Partnership? Making a greater “pie”?

My guess is he knows that any regime that fails to meet the very utmost basic living necessities of it’s citizens is doomed to suffer wide-spread unrest and organized uprising. This would explain that cynical self-serving, highly wasteful, politically motivated bullshit named “ObamaCare” and his pro stance on increasing the minimum wage.

Beyond that, (and let’s face it, raising the minimum wage for workers on NEW military contracts isn’t really much given where the wars are) if you want relief from HIS cuts to social security and HIS cuts to food stamps, and back into the middle class than you have to pull yourself up by your boot straps. And by the way, meanwhile the Fed will keep throwing money at the already rich, are tax code will continue to favor the already rich, and the Corporations will continue to enjoy “..everything in my [Obama’s] power to make sure are Corporations are competitive….”

You cannot claim to be against wealth concentration if you are helping corporations profit. What is more, you will not achieve an equitable distribution of wealth in this country unless you undertake complete campaign finance reform.

Obama seems to be trying to make sure that the People’s most basic living necessities – at their minimum - are met. And if they want into the middle class they have to own their plight and pull themselves up.

We Know How Far Trump Will Go - How Far Will Republicans Go?

Thom plus logo Colonel Vindman's testimony pretty much proves that Trump was trying to shake down Ukraine for information on Biden, and that the Republicans are doing everything they can to cover up this extortion attempt.
