Noam Chomsky: America hates its poor

“The enormous benefits given to the very wealthy, the privileges for the very wealthy here, are way beyond those of other comparable societies and are part of the ongoing class war. Take a look at CEO salaries. CEOs are no more productive or brilliant here than they are in Europe, but the pay, bonuses, and enormous power they get here are out of sight. They’re probably a drain on the economy, and they become even more powerful when they are able to gain control of policy decisions.”

A Senate Bill  from 2012 which attempted to make changes to the way the farm subsidies are paid out, was shot down by the same Congressional representatives who continuously demand requirements like drug testing, income documentation, work or training, time limits and many other harsh guidelines for impoverished families who dare ask for help with food.”

What’s worse is that profit driven prison systems do not help the country, instead it creates a demand for prisoners and our youths and the disenfranchised are already paying the price.
