Republicans Defeated in France and Greece
To paraphrase one of the Right’s favorite soundbites: Austerity has never worked.
Voters in France and Greece have spoken. They said No. Austerity for 99% of the population + unimaginable wealth and splendor for one percent = electoral defeat. Hopefully the same thing will happen to GOP politicians who keep trying to increase “defense” spending, reduce taxes for millionaires and cut infrastructure spending to the marrow.
Sarkozy, like his conservative counterparts in the U.S., tried to win votes by pushing the Bigotry and “Christian Values” buttons. How’d that work out for him?
The European election results are a positive sign for 99-percenters everywhere.
