The chocolate ration is being increased to 25 grammes per week.

This bears repeating

bored_lurking commented on a NYT article about Krugman being all that’s left of the left:

“whether a Democrat or a Republican was in the White House. Since World War II, Bartels found, wealthy families in the 95th percentile in income had seen identical income growth under both parties. But for families in the 20th percentile, the difference was astonishing: Under Democratic presidents, their income grew at six times the rate it did under Republican ones.”

I have seen many times people arguing that republicans and democrats are just two sides of the same coin. Amazing how two faces of the same thing could have such different effects for poor people.
