    One more tax cut for the rich and we'll be right back where we were just before the Great Depression. The last time the rich and mega-rich stepped in and bought up America for pennies on the dollar.

    The real reason why Super Rich hate Obama: He's calling them out on fairness, so they call him a socialist. As you can see, the Income Differential between 1923-1929 (pre-Great Depression) is similar to how it was 2002-2007 (pre-Great Recession). Our country flourishes best when the Middle Class grows at a similar rate to the elite class. Republicans have pledged to make this income inequality greater & to further lower taxes on the super rich, & raise taxes on the already weakened middle class.

Twitter / whitehouse: 11 Facts about the tax debate...ONLY THE TOP 2% BENEFIT FROM REPUBLICAN PLAN!!

Read this and immediately thought Obama, but then asked my sister and mom who they thought said this without saying it was Hitler. Within seconds they both snickered and said Obama. That says something.

It's good to keep this in mind each and every day!

15 dollar minimum wage. When you pay local workers more, they spend more locally. When corporations don't pay the workers that profit is sent to the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. We recently coauthored at report Los Angeles Rising: A City That Works for Everyone with the UCLA Labor Center and Institute for Research on Labor and Employment which looked at the consequences, both intended and unintended, of such a lift. We found that a phased-in increase to $15.25 by 2019 will put $5.9 billion more into the pockets of 723,000 working people, which will generate $6.4 billion in increased sales. That means that every dollar increase in the minimum wage generates $1.12 in economic stimulus. Businesses will hire more in response to the greater demand, creating 46,400 new jobs. Economicrt.org
