According to a new report by the Economic Policy Institute between 2009-2013 the top 1% captured 85.1 percent of total income growth in the U.S. Over that period the average income of the top 1% grew 17.4 percent while income of the bottom 99% grew a mere .7%. In 15 states the top 1% captured all of the income growth. Nationwide the top 1% captured captured 20% of all income which is near the peak of 24% which occurred in 1928, just prior to the Great Depression.

Everyone can thank the Clinton-Bush-Obama Obama Free Slave policies as well as the Clinton repeal of Glass-Stegall for the historically unprecedented transfer of wealth to the top 1%. For this service to the top 1% Clinton received $153M. Not satisfied, she is promising more of the same. She'll be paid handsomely by the top 1%.

Link to the report or it's just more of your biased bull ****. Whose economic policy unit? I just googled "Economic Policy Unit" and this is the closest fit I could find.

Yes, he contributed to the Puppet because she helped him and his cronies get fabulously rich. Don't blame Trump if the Democratic Party is nominating a Puppet of the Billionaire Class. Blame the corrupt Party.

Trump got rich off the things that have destroyed this country, crony capitalism, outsourcing to foreign countries and hiring illegals and immigrants on HB Visas rather than having to pay American workers. He's got far more blood on his hands than Hillary. He's a pathetic fraud and a con man.

Really? He didn't pass the laws. He just paid off the Puppet Democrats to do it for him. And now The Party is set to do more of the same for the highest bidder.

What a lovely Party and what lovely voters who keep this corrupt and totally polluted Party on power. Are you one of them?
