COTW: Poverty rising

Repugnants continue to claim that a growing economy raises all boats.  This chart belies that ridiculous claim.  They constantly plug for tax relief for the rich and corporate. while poverty has surpassed levels seen in the 1950's, apparently their version of a 'golden age'.  The US poverty rate is one of the highest in the developed world.  Only Chile, Mexico and Israel have higher rates.  But the Trumpist, will build a wall and that will fix their wagon, won't he? Not!  Fortunately for him, white supremacists don't read much world history.  China already did that, and it didn't work there either. Just ask the Mongols.
