Quote of the day

(h\t Glenn Greenwald via Twitter)

"I think our biggest failure collectively has been our failure to stop the ripoff of the middle class by the economic elite of this country, and this is not just something that happened because of the forces of the market."--Rep. David Obey (D–WI)
Mother Jones (here) has this quote from a Fiscal Times article (here) about the retiring Obey (Chair of the House Appropriations Committee), understandably titled "David Obey: I Leave More Discontented Than I Started" (that means he's been paying attention).

I realized a few weeks ago that the US is shifting to a 2-class economy and many in the middle class are obliviously working to make this happen. They're called Tea Party members.
