Mr. Potter in 1947: if you shoot pool with some employee here, you can come and borrow money. What does that get us? A discontented, lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class (from "It's a Wonderful Life").

Republicans in 2017: Not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing,. As opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it's on booze or women or movies. (Sen Charles Grassley)

So I say to Republican voters making under $5 million — your leaders think you are lazy rabble, and they believe if you just put down that beer and skip that Netflix binge watch, you too will be a millionaire. So maybe it is time to vote for a Democrat who understands you are not lazy?
