Unaffordable bosses – why we need to tax the rich : Socialist Worker

A protester at the Occupy Wall Street site in New York

Whenever an argument is put for reform that could benefit millions of working class people, right wing commentators tell us it is unaffordable or idealistic.

During this election campaign we will no doubt hear bosses howl about “Labour’s magic money tree”.

Money magically appearing for doing nothing is an idea they know very well.

The wealth they control is created off the back of the workers’ labour that they exploit.

It is not the corporate directors who produce the things our society needs—it is the working class they sneer at.

The richest have done very well out of the Tories’ austerity lie. We are not “all in it together”.

They are in it for themselves and have happily watched our living standards plummet since the economic crisis began.

Meanwhile their bank balances have soared.
