Conservatives attack on the middle class continues.

"Conservatives" wrecked the economy, walked away with a gazillion dollars of taxpayer money, and now they blame public workers for the economy they created. Clever.

But they're not done yet.

Rev. Jesse Jackson: Don't Sleep Through Assault on Workers

Now conservative politicians act as if teachers, cops and nurses caused the budget crisis, not Wall Street. They represent the few against the many. Only over the last 30 years, the broad middle class has declined. The wealthiest 1 percent of Americans now capture nearly one-fourth of all income, and control more wealth than 90 percent of Americans. The question now is whether we can rebuild a strong middle class, or whether the crisis will be used to reduce it further.
