7,700,000 American seniors living in poverty
16,200,000 American children living in poverty
21,600,000 Americans living in poverty
45,800,000 Americans receiving food stamps
49,900,000 Americans with no health insurance
12,580,000 unemployed Americans
14,000 Americans controlling 40% of America’s wealth
To the above, fold in Paul Ryan’s budget, cuts to Medicare, food stamps, unemployment insurance, welfare and Social Security benefits. Stir in more tax cuts for the 1% and the corporations. Add more defense spending and 2-3 conservative activist Supreme Court justices.
Season to taste with FOX News talking points, evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity, xenophobia, racism and homophobia. Add a pinch of extreme weather (tornadoes, droughts, floods, hurricanes) caused by climate change.
Let sit for 4 years.
