Ever since FDR’s New Deal pissed them off, the GOP has been steadily turning the US into a third world nation. Never ones to waste a crisis, Covid-19 is enabling them to make a great leap forward in that effort.

Your not going to sell laws or reforms to the rich by talking about how much those laws will reduce poverty, they simply don’t care. The only way to gain support for this type of legislation with them is to talk about how much they help the economy, how they keep the economy from tanking. Talk about the size of their wallets, and their beady little eyes will light up.
