Debate topic: According to republicans it's the elderly and the poor that are destroying America. I suggest that maybe it's mega-rich corporations that have bought the heart and soul of the Republican Party. (*Or any right wing political party if you live in a different country)

The last republican president, Geo "I'm An Idiot" Bush has cost the American tax pay over fifteen trillion in debt. That's based on the two wars, bank deregulation financial collapse and massive tax cuts for the rich and their corporations. A lot of that debt continues to grow as the tax laws have not been changed. Deregulation is still a big push for republicans leaving way for future financial chaos.
Read Sen. Bernie Sanders report that tells the tale of the greedy and corrupt 1% and see for yourself. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MUCH GOOD COULD HAVE COME TO OUR COUNTRY IF THOSE TAXES WERE COLLECTED instead of wasted on their bonuses, lobbying, political contributions, environmental destruction, military contracts and protecting their piles of cash. The only people that suffer for it is the 99%!
