Missouri Senator Hawley: Economy Rigged

Reader suggested link puts the working-class life into perspective. Take a look:

Hawley: 'Aristocratic Elite' Engineering U.S. Economy Against Middle Class

For his first major speech on the Senate floor, Hawley slammed the "big banks, big tech, big multi-national corporations, along with their allies in the academy and the media," whom he said have created an economic structure in which they, the well-connected, benefit while the American working and middle class increasingly struggle to get ahead.

Hawley's a Democrat?
Does the GOP know he's slandering their owners?

Guess he's "peed in his own Chili".

11:28 - the biggest myth in America is the republicans are the party of big business. Its the democrats. big business, like the democrats, LOVE big regulation. For the dems is about power. For the big businesses, its about creating barriers to entry to their industry.

^^nah chump, the rest of us don't really care about either party. We're pretty enlightened. It's the bottom-of-the barrel, riff-raff like you who thinks one party is better than the other. Wake up dope. Your post reads like a moron wrote it.

@12:40 the Republicans have been owned by the Wealthy since 1888, when Harry Sinclair led the movement to convert the Populist GOP to a political arm of the elite.

This isn't a myth, just look at History. Which Party was in power during the so-called "Financial Crises" that transferred wealth from the productive classes to the elites?
1929 - Hoover (Stocks and Bank Accounts)
1987 - Reagan (Stocks, Bonds, and a six year long raid on the savings of the elderly in S&Ls)
2008 - Baby Bush (Home Equity and Bank accounts)

And this doesn't even cover the "Recessions" (Eisenhower = 3, Nixon = 2, Ford = 1, Bush1 = 2) that were a means of devaluating the Dollar, or the tripling of the Deficit under Reagan, doubling that under Bush1, 80% increase under Baby Bush, and 45% increase (so far) under Trump.

Wealth, once created doesn't vanish, but it sure moves from the producer's pockets to the Wealthy under the Republicans.

The worst is yet to come. Four Dollar gas in some parts of the U.S. Inflation .loan defaults, Student Loan,payments taking money out of the economy.

I'm liking what I'm hearing from him. I'm shocked a Pub is speaking the truth like this. Regardless of party, it is true.

Don't know enough about Hawley to know if he's this smart, but this could possibly be a subtle opening for an undercover campaign to create an "Anti-Trump" alternative within the GOP after the inevitable happens and the far-right strategy to subvert the Constitution blows up in their faces.

"Checks and Balances" can be a bitch, Trumpkins, so be careful not to rile the "quiet steel" that makes up the majority of the American People, they'll "Hooverize" your asses.

Of course this is sourced from Breitbart, so it's highly likely that Hawley never made such a speech at all.
