Tapper Pressed De Blasio: Who Decides Whose Hands Are the Right Hands the Money Is In?

‘When I say there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands’


DE BLASIO: “Look at what’s happening in my city. Look what’s happening all over the country. Millions upon millions of people who literally can barely make ends meet. Working people working one job, two jobs, working harder than ever, longer hours than ever. The pace of our lives gets tougher and tougher and people get less and less back. Why? Because the 1% really has rigged the system, including the recent tax law that gave a huge windfall to the corporations and the wealthy. This is systematic. I said in the speech this has been an agenda from Reagan’s administration through to trump’s to take money from working people and give it to the 1%. When I say there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands, it means to say we need policies that give back to working people. Like guaranteeing health care for all.”
