Challenging the Neoliberalism at the Root of Trump's Authoritarianism 7.12.2017 Truthout.com

Republican Senator Charles Grassley tells the Des Moines Register his party’s plan for deep tax cuts to the rich “recognizes the people that are investing, as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies. ” Perhaps Sen.

So why, Senator Grassley, can’t we all just be rich, like you? Every Darn Penny Working people don’t have much to spend on entertainment nowadays, because it takes “every darn penny they have” just to survive.
