The reality of the Republican tax scam hits home: Paul Ryan Brags About Giving Public School Employee $1.50
- Mother Jones.
Think about that.
The GOP is bragging about giving public school employees $78 a year, meanwhile, according to the Tax Policy Center, the new tax changes will hand the richest 1 percent an extra $51,000 a year.
that works out to be $17.50 an hour - probably more than that public school employees makes. (I actually ran the calculation, but how many school employees make more than $51,000 a year?)
A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.
Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich
