Alexis: "I see the country pushed right with talk of deficits, cuts, austerity, starve the beast language, Certainly from republicans but also through the cowardice of Democrats"
Heather Mcghee agreed and added:
"The continued right wing effort to cut middle/working class pgms is a continuation of their "southern strategy" from the 60's-70's. First they challenged the voting rights act, then busing, finally pushed the cut/starve the beast agenda (starting in the early 80's) All the while talking about and targeting minorities, because cutting government spending is believed to mainly hurt low income minorities."
OWS HAS change the national dialogue, but hasn't ended the conservative efforts to cut pgms that help the 99%.
Our work continues, Push the dialogue left, push stimulus, Job creation, The deficit is a phony crises. Don't believe the hype.
Until we have replaced our corrupt government system let's push for economic equality and support for the working/middle class!!
