Re "What happened to America's great middle class?" (Editorial, Oct. 21): The one-tenth of one percent has been beating up the 99 percent for years. When we would complain, we were accused of class war.
There was class war going on, but the working class was not engaged in it. When Taft-Hartley legislation became the law of the land, that set up the slow death of organized labor.
This attack on working people was enabled by laws passed by Democratic and Republicans politicians. The major flaw with Robert Reich's presentation was his conclusion that capitalism can be reformed, at least for awhile.
Capitalism is the problem, over and over again. Had it not been for government saving capitalism, it would have gone out of existence long ago.
