GOP party I think the people are starting to get the message. Your party wants the middleclass and poor people to pay more taxes, so you can give fat refund checks to billionaire and millionaires to supplement their fat bonus checks. Because when you get right down to it, and cut through the chase, that is exactly what your party is asking and campaigning for daily.
Rick Perry wants to give billionaires and millionaires a $500,000 tax break. Herman Cain has a 999 plan that helps the rich too and makes the middleclass and poor pay more. In fact, all of the GOP candidates as well as those who are already serving has been on one accord with giving the billionaires and millionaires more money, while squeezing the blood out of the average Joe and Jill.
In addition, the GOP wants to cut funding for schools, so that more dummies like them are churned out. You want to privatize grandma and grandpa's check, so that investors can get their grubby little hands on it and invest in deals that there's no guarantee are stable in profits and a steady flow of money. Sorta like how the people lost a lot of money on their 401K. In other words, risk your retirement fund playing something similar to Russian Roulette.
On your list of things of wants is deregulate more, so that people will die sooner from pollution in the air and contaminated water. Drill more, so that accidents like the gulf coast can kill our marine life.
There is one thing, I'm curious about. If the GOP cuts 1.2 trillion worth of programs, what will our taxes be used for? I pray that it is not Congress salary. In fact, cutting the Congress retirement pensions would really trim the budget. In fact, a big fat pay cut as well wouldn't hurt either along with some cuts to their medical benefits. They should contribute more money into their medical plan too. Eliminate those long paid vacations they seem to take too many of as well. The Congress needs to share in the pain for once instead of bypassing themselves. Everytime they take time off to close for months at a time, it should be leave without pay.
The Occupy Wall Streets Folks should be gathering up signatures to put that on the next election ballots in every single state. Not only that, signatures to end lobbying and to make it against the law for CEO's to receive big fat bonus checks and put a cap on those bonuses by knocking off a few of those zeroes. Don't leave out making it against the law to outsource jobs and still get tax credits.
