Good for John, but this was his legacy:

Quote:
At the beginning of the 1800s most poor Americans outside the South resembled the poor of Europe. They were chiefly orphans, widows, people too old or too sick to work, or seasonal workers out of season. Wealthy people or local governments gave them "outdoor relief," consisting of food, firewood, or small amounts of money known as alms, primarily from a sense of paternalism or community responsibility. State poor laws, generally inherited from English tradition, required towns to take care of their poor.
Industrialization and immigration brought poverty of a new kind and on a new scale to American cities in the 1820s, intensifying in the economic crises of the late 1830s and the 1850s. The number of people needing help increased dramatically, in part from the sporadic nature of all industrial jobs and in part from recurring financial panics. Urban builders for the first time constructed housing exclusively for the poor. Growing numbers of the poor were foreign-born, especially Irish immigrants fleeing the potato famine in the 1850s and eastern European immigrants later in the century. Chinese immigrants to the West Coast faced both racial discrimination and especially low wages.

His writings on the reason we became a nation stand.

his writings on and ownership of slaves do not stand. just as racists today it still stands for racists like you, where I believe racists are in the same category as pedophiles and once outed should have to notify the community who they are and should not have free/public speech on those topics like pedophiles and should lose the right to vote as some states do with felons.

well the results are in....

Workers’ wages fall after passage of GOP tax cuts
Trump's corporate tax cut hasn't benefited workers like he said it would.


Quote:
The federal government just admitted that workers are earning lower wages since the passage of the GOP tax cuts.

When President Donald Trump was pushing Congress to pass his tax plan last year, which focused on lowering corporate rates and the income taxes of high earners, he pulled out a handy statistic: according to the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, the average family would make $4,000 more under the new plan.

Trump repeatedly used this figure to argue for the bill prior to its passage in December 2017, as well as directly after. During a February 2018 speech in Ohio, he claimed “economists estimate that our business tax cut will raise the income of a typical family by an average of $4,000.” Vice President Mike Pence has repeated that talking point, as have others in the White House.

The president’s $4,000 lie
On Tuesday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued a new release detailing the “real earnings summary” through May 2018.

The true revelation was tucked away at the bottom of the release, in the “Production and nonsupervisory employees” section: “From May 2017 to May 2018, real average hourly earnings decreased 0.1 percent, seasonally adjusted,” it read.



at the same time huge tax givaways for the rich...

and at the same time...

Democrats make their bid for dominance


Quote:
When one of the two political parties controls Congress and the White House, they typically get one big shot to make their mark and lock in votes for the next election cycle. Democrats just got theirs, with the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Congress passed on March 10.

Democrats will roll out a lot of new legislation during the next 18 months, but the ARP, as it’s known, is likely to determine whether Democrats hold or expand their control of Congress, or cede control to Republicans. The huge relief bill will do much to determine the status of the economy in the fall of 2022, as voters are considering their options, and it will be a test of whether Biden fulfilled his promise to get the nation back to normal.

Republicans had their big shot at dominance in 2017, when they passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. They blew it. Most families got a tax cut under the law, but the savings for businesses and the wealthy dwarfed the savings for middle- and working-class households. President Trump and other prominent Republicans claimed the trickle-down effects would boost spending throughout the economy and raise middle-class incomes by $4,000. It never happened. Trump also said the law would pay for itself by boosting economic activity and overall tax revenue. That never happened, either.

Voters never warmed to the Trump tax cuts. At the outset, 56% of voters told Gallup they disapproved of the tax cuts and only 29% approved. By the time of the 2018 midterms that had improved slightly, with 46% disapproving and 39% approving. But if Republicans thought voters would reward them for putting more money in their pockets, they miscalculated. Democrats running on the need for better health care retook control of House in 2018, blocking the Republicans’ partisan agenda.

Will the Democrats do better with their huge relief bill? The opening bid suggests yes, they will. Support for the Biden relief plan was 62% in a Monmouth University poll, 72% in a New York Times poll and 76% in a Morning Consult poll. Many Independents and some Republicans support the plan. It won’t provide much direct aid to the wealthy, but it provides numerous benefits for low- and middle-income families, including relief checks of up to $1,400 per person, expanded tax breaks for families with kids and more opportunities to get subsidized health insurance. There are a lot more voters in those income brackets than there are millionaires.
