Star-Telegram. Good question. If she ever attended a town hall, you could ask her.
Hogging the wealth
On Sept. 2, U.S. Rep. Kay Granger wrote to her constituents: "... the House is working to foster job creation by reducing the regulatory burden on small and large businesses. ... We have consistently voted on measures to repeal job-destroying regulations in order to empower businesses to create more jobs."
Wow! Business has been consistently deregulated for the past 10 years. And what do we have to show for it?
Seventy percent of the national assets are owned by the top 1 percent of our citizens, and the bottom 70 percent of the wage earners account for only 10 percent of the economy.
In 1976, the top 1 percent controlled 22 percent of the economy.
What does it take for Granger to learn? Is she a shill for big business to control 90 percent of the economy?
An entire generation of massive wealth creation has been strategically withheld from 99 percent of the U.S. population.
