How much more proof do we need that “Republican-rules” capitalism doesn't work?

With Labor Day approaching, Robert Reich looks at the bad economy and the widening wealth gap.

“The good news this Labor Day: Jobs are returning. The bad news this Labor Day: Most of them pay lousy wages and low if non-existent benefits....

So if wages have flattened or declined for the bottom 60 percent, yet productivity has increased, where have the gains gone? Mostly, to corporations and the very rich.”

Reich calls for an increase in the minimum wage so that it's $10.50 -$15.00, depending on cost of living in a given area.

Republican arguments against the increase are shot down, as anyone who reads the whole article will see.

This from the same illiterate buffoon that said all the polls showing Obama out in the lead were wrong and that Romney would be elected by a landslide.

And how did that work out in Minnesota? DFL governor, DFL senate, DFL house.

America SOUNDLY rejected your crap.

You'll do even worse in 2014 with your far right extremist views and your bigotry and hatred.

Robert Reich has proven time and time again that the Voo-doo Economics of France are what he thinks the US should follow. I love little Commies like Bobbie Reich. Then I get my free stuff like my Obamaphone.
