  •  Rebuilding the Middle Class (3+ / 0-)

    That's long been my prescription for a central organizing principle for Democratic economic policy.  It will necessarily entail taking some of the nation's wealth away from the wealthiest, because there's no other way to achieve the goal.

    I don't mind using the phrase redistributing wealth, and I think we should use it more.  We ought to use it, for instance, to describe the last 30 years of American economic policy, because it has dramatically redistributed wealth upward.  If we use the phrase in a descriptive way, we remove a lot of its propagandistic meaning.
