how weak politicians and Wall Street have bankrupted the Middle Class
In the 1980's when Reagan deregulated just about everything assuming that prices in America would drop through "fair" competition and "fair" markets the exact opposite has happened. Corporate America has bought up and conglomeratized just about everything we need from rents, phones, gas, food, cable while at the same time fixed the prices so in a sense there is no "competition". Corporate profits are at all time highs (in trillions of dollars) while Middle class wages have consistently fallen since 1968.
