Economy Great for the Wealthy, Not for Us

Jan 29, 2024

The media and the politicians, especially Biden, keep telling us how great the economy is. They say, “Unemployment is down, inflation is down.” They pretend the reason most people don’t agree is just a “feeling,” a feeling that some call a “vibe-session.” This is complete bull shit.

Corporate America made over three trillion dollars (a 3 followed by 12 zeroes) last year. That’s after taxes!

For us, our mortgages have gone way up, rent hit the roof, car loans are up and above all, the cost of food is outrageous. Anyone walking into a grocery store knows they walk out with less groceries after paying a lot more money. The wealthy class has found all these ways of increasing prices to take even more money from our pockets and put it in theirs.
