    “Republicans are more inclined to support policies that favor the 1%”
    Why? Do Democrats not have donors from the “1%”? Do big businesses not get into bed with both sides looking for rent-seeking opportunities?

    I’m wondering why rifuture devotes so little attention to the needs of ordinary rank and file workers.  Everything seems to be geared toward affluent liberal concerns like gay marriage and what strategies work best for electing Democrats to public office.  Katie Davis from Channel 10 is doing a much-needed report on the DLT and its slighting of unemployed Rhode Islanders.  Why hasn’t that been covered by rifuture?  You need to focus more on the needs of workers and less on those of the elite.

    Guess I’m questioning how many people of any social class would say that the portion of the gridlocked era that began with the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and which continues to this day is healthy.

    Lucrative for some, yes. But healthy?

    Just wondering. What’s been so great about the last ten years?

    I’d really like to know.

    Would the people at the Projo say that it’s been swell?
