It’s all about the power

Posted: February 22, 2011 in Non-AZ, The Economy

Remember my posts about the destruction of the middle class?  Remember how I said the Wisconsin situation was an example of the Conservatives in this country are going to bat for big business?  Apparently I’m not the only one that thinks this.

Greater minds than mine have boiled the situation down to its bare essentials.  Ezra Klein says in an article:

But some won’t have to sacrifice nearly so much. Walker’s campaign platform called for sharp cuts in corporate taxes, including “eliminating corporate taxes for the first two years of operation.” His budget repair bill proposes to allow the state to sell energy plants “with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state,” and goes on to say that “any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest.”

Its all about a power shift and doesn’t have a damn thing to do with deficits.  Don’t be fooled by this and don’t let them take what little power the lower and middle classes have left.
