My statement about “stealing from the poor to give to the excessively rich” refers not only to the article but to the last 50 years in the U.S. (and to the entire history of the U.S. and to the entire history of the human race).
“Stealing from the poor to give to the excessively rich” is alluded to in the title of this article – and in the article’s mentioning the proposal to cut SNAP (food stamps) soon after the recent Tax Bill Scam gave away billions of dollars to the super-rich and to giant corporations.
“Stealing from the poor to give to the excessively rich” refers to how Republicans like Ryan and Trump have given away billions of dollars to the super-rich, which will create horrendous deficits, which Republicans have indicated will have to be reduced by taking away financial help from the poor and working class citizens through cuts to safety-net programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
“Stealing from the poor to give to the excessively rich” refers – far beyond this article – to countless actions over countless years by the right-wing rich against the poor, disabled, sick, old, women, and children. The right-wing rich are disgusting bullies who abuse and hurt the weakest, most vulnerable people.
Yes, there is apparently much that you have missed.
Try reading books like “The War Against the Poor”, “The War on the Poor”, “The War on Labor and the Left”, “The War at Home”, “Winner Take All Politics”, “Who Stole the American Dream?”, “Runaway Inequality”, etc.
Also, search the internet for articles on “class war by the rich against the poor and workers” and “redistribution of wealth and income from the working class to the rich.” “Redistribution” in this case means the right-wing stealing from the poor and common people to give that money to the excessively rich.
