Which party passed all the tax cuts for the wealthy?

It wasn’t the Democrats.

Which party eliminated regulation of Wall Street?

Primarily Republicans.

Which party opposed the Affordable Care Act which helps the poor be able to have health care?

Republicans.

Which party has done all it can do to bust unions, halt increases to the minimum wage, destroy Social Security by death from a thousand cuts, and eliminate estate taxes?

.....and yet Democrats are responsible for the wealth gap
************

I never said Democrats are responsible. Not once. And I say directly "Democrats aren't responsible for the wealth gap". And hey, Democrats bear NO responsibility. NONE. They are 100% clean on this - never mind they are 50% of the major parties.

Ok? Dems. Not responsible.

Georgia is getting bluer.

Texas is getting bluer.

The more Democrat those 2 states get, the more their wealth gap will increase.

BOTH states will have visibly larger wealth gaps 3.5 years from now. And 5 years from now. And especially 10 years from now.

Hopefully we're all in good health.

Hopefully we can reconvene on this issue in 3.5 years to kick things off.

That would have been after one full term of a Democratic President, Congress and Senate. AND 3.5 years of Georgia becoming more Democratic. Then as Democrats become even more powerful in those states.... beyond just 3.5 years from now the Wealth Gap will get bigger and bigger and more noticeable too.

AND that is after more Affordable Care Act subsidy, and trillions in stimulus for the middle class and after years of Democratic rule. Who knows? Years from now I will have to recall this thread and everyone can cite fine data showing less wealth gap. Surely - - after years of trillions of dollars for the middle class and poor, after years of shifting Blue-ish there will be less Wealth Gap right?

I say - no.

It's no different than making football predictions. We won't know till after the season is played.
