Yes the Unemployment rate was 7.5 % when I took office.  I introduced Reagonomics and Trickle down, the rate jumped to 10.5%, and even with my back pedaling and unlimited check book (Debt ceiling) I had to raise taxes.  But all I will be remembered for is the first year.

The first chart is a simple one, and it concerns the United States alone. It tracks the share of over-all income taken by the top ten per cent of households from 1910 to 2010. Broadly speaking, it’s centered on a U shape. Inequality climbed steeply in the Roaring Twenties, and then fell sharply in the decade and a half following the Great Crash of October, 1929. From the mid-forties to the mid-seventies, it stayed pretty stable, and then it took off, eventually topping the 1928 level in 2007. (The chart shows the share of the top decile falling back a bit after the financial crisis of 2007 to 2008. New figures for 2012 from Saez, which came out too late to be included in Piketty’s book, show the line hitting another new high, of more than fifty per cent.)

Reagan was elected in 1980. Look how things suddenly changed under Republican rule for the middle class. That is real, undeniable class warfare.

Supply-side economics, ushered in by Reagan and the trickle down villains of the Right Wing, creates billionaires at the expense of running a country for the other 300 million residents. 
It’s time to end the supply-side failure and start governing for the entire country, fixing the infrastructure, providing a strong safety net, taking care of the seniors, taking care of the veterans, and create demand in our economy by focusing on the middle classes. #demand_side_economics

The same failed Right Wing rhetoric for 80 years. Historical perspective proves how ignorant and malicious it is to be Republican.

“Congressman, did you listen–I mean, really listen – to the stories of the men in those communities? Did you hear them tell of being targeted by racial profiling, discriminatory drug enforcement laws and the cycle of incarceration that keeps them shut out of not only job opportunities, but also housing and the right to vote?”

Jonathan Capehart’s open letter to Paul Ryan (via msnbc)

Paul Ryan is the classic conservative: he tells fake stories, never has a source, never uses quotes or facts, just “you heard about” or “you hear people say” bullshit.

Reagan had his “welfare queen in a Cadillac” racist dog whistle. Ryan is just continuing the tradition.
