But yeah go ahead and vote for Jill Stein, she’s awesome.  That proves you’re a real progressive.

From last night:

HILLARY CLINTON

I happen to support that in a way that will actually work to our benefit. But when I look at what you have proposed, you have what is called now the Trump loophole because it would so advantage you and the business you do. You’ve proposed

DONALD TRUMP

Who gave it that name?

LESTER HOLT

Sir, this is Secretary Clinton’s two minutes.

HILLARY CLINTON

…tax benefit for your bit family. And when you look at what you are proposing it is, as I said, Trumped up, trickle-down. Trickle down it did not work. It got us into the mess we were in 2008-2009. Slashing taxes on the wealthy hasn’t worked and a lot of really smart, wealthy people know that. And they are saying, hey we need to do more to make the contributions we should be making to rebuild the middle class. I don’t think top-down works in America. I think building the middle-class, investing in the middle class, making college debt-free so more young people can get their education, helping people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate, those are the kinds of things that will really boost the economy, broad-based, inclusive growth.

Just for the record, Bernie couldn’t have said that any better.  Maybe he could have said it in a more rumpled, less red suit, but not any better.
