Finally, while we can have an interesting discussion about questions like the role of unions in wage inequality, or the role of lax regulation in exploding C.E.O. pay, there is no question that the policies of the current majority party — a party that has held a much-needed increase in the minimum wage hostage to large tax cuts for giant estates — have relentlessly favored the interests of a tiny, wealthy minority against everyone else. ~Paul Krugman, The New York Times
I’m sure that we are all shocked (shocked!) to find the Republicans working in the interests of corporations and the moneyed interest. That would be so…entirely in keeping with their entire history as a party.
