Canadian, Swedish Middle Class Richer Than Ours
Three decades of trickle-down economics have led to this: Canada and Sweden’s middle-classes, with their higher social spending and more progressive societies, are now financially better off than America’s. The poor and middle class in America are sliding to second-class status against countries that conservatives mock. The only thing that Beltway economic policies succeed at is enriching the elites at the expense of the rest of us.
Remember this the next time you see Paul Ryan or any other GOP very serious person suggest more of the same.
