Methinks Hillary and the Democrats will take care of the wealthy quite handily; also, a record number of people are out of the workforce during the Obama administration and wages have been stagnant for several years. How is that helping blue collar?

Major corporations don’t have that much trouble dealing with regs and taxes. It’s the small-business corporations that are driven out by regulations; if you don’t incorporate as a small business, you are at a disadvantage legally and with respect to taxation. Large businesses just pass taxes and reg costs on in the form of higher prices. That hits the poor and the middle class directly….

I was listening to a breakdown of Trump’s economic plan on NPR and thought, “I thought trickle-down Reaganomics was proven completely bs.” While I certainly don’t feel comfortable with Clinton as president, and am confident that she’s just as buddy-buddy with the elite 1% as much as Trump is and will back-pedal on a lot of promises she makes while running for president, at least she has the decency to publicly act like she’s our (the middle class’) friend.

Lack of awareness of climate, fuel consumption and modern consumers were the biggest problems for the US car industry in Detroit. Obama saved many jobs e.g. at Chrysler by investing tax money wisely.
Trump can repeat the mistakes of the past and make “America outdated again”.
Right wing populist only pretends to help the workers and the poor, but just divide and harm them. The tactic has been the same since early Italien fascist stole the red and black symbols and uniforms from the syndicalist left wing anarchists and some of their confused and poorly educated supporters.
