This isn't fair, because I read a fantastic phrase and I don't know where it came from. So to whoever coined this phrase: thanks.
Bush is waging a war. And he has a war on wages.
I think 'wages' is the rallying cry of progressives. When people talk about the economy, reactionaries would like to talk about taxes and growth. We progressives would like to talk about wages. Because the higher they are, the better off we are.
And progressive policies deliver higher wages.
Conservative/reactionary policies don't.
That's our bottom line, and we ought to stick to it.
Stop the war on wages! Waging war is a war on wages! (or something like that. . . .)
