Yes, believe it. Collective interests, seem to benefit MORE collectively, than a few
selfishwealthy CEO's giving a "pittance" salary to their employees and expecting everyone's first born child in return. Never mind how these wonderful "private sector" job creators , just seem to LOOVE creating jobs in ANYPLACE ELSE BUT THE USA.
Go to Walmart. I bet you it will take you almost 1 hour to locate a non food item made in the USA, by people paid a living wage. That is your father, my sister, and someone's brother going without a job, so that Walmart can sell a t shirt made from slave labor in china.
Now go to your mailbox the day after Christmas and pick up the mail. A great service (USPS), paid for and subsidized by the US government, that employs its people with LIVING wages.

While right wingers pain President Obama as a "socialist" the truth is that corporate profits are at an all time high thanks to his political policies:
Corporate Profits Have Grown By 171 Percent Under Obama
"According to a Bloomberg News analysis, corporate profits have grown by 171% during the Obama era:
U.S. corporations’ after-tax profits have grown by 171 percent under Obama, more than under any president since World War II, and are now at their highest level relative to the size of the economy since the government began keeping records in 1947, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Profits are more than twice as high as their peak during President Ronald Reagan’s administration"
Obviously, Reaganomics and it's "trickle down" theory which is nothing more than corporate welfare is at fault and should be changed forever. That's when we will all benefit from the system.Brooklyn Is God's Country!
