Conservative economic policies have failed
Low tax rates. Profits for so-called “job creators.” Spending cuts. The three things that conservatives say are most necessary for achieving a healthy economy are all occurring at historic levels. If conservatives were right, there could be no way that the economic situation could be this bad on either side of the pond. But it is, and that leads to one inescapable logical conclusion: conservative economic policies are not good for job creation or the overall economy.
Yesterday I listened to a conservative on a radio talk show argue that we haven’t cut taxes deeply enough.
The Ryan plan and GOP policies overall put America more in debt and help balloon the deficit.
The evidence clearly shows that conservative policies have led to lost jobs, stagnant wages, a crappy economy and a lower standard of living.
I think there is a significant movement within conservative circles to create a plantation economy that benefits the wealthy.
No reading of tea leaves is necessary to reach this conclusion — it’s the logical end game of the central policies being pushed by the right.
