This is how I look at it. Since the mid 1980's over 600 BILLION dollars has shifted from the middle class and already poor to the upper two percent of the population, unfortunately, it was not through fair acquisition. Since it is blatantly obvious that some of the current Republican leadership is allowing the promise of "you will be taken care of during and when out of office" get in the way of making sure that the rules are at least fair for everyone.
What fascinates me is how many people I know who are Republican, yet complain like everyone who may be feeling the financial pinch right now. If you are hard working, believe everyone should apply 100% of their ability to get what they want in life, if done within the set boundaries, and your taxes should be so low, and that the function of government should be able to balance on the head of a pin.
WELL SNAP THE BACK TO REALITY. Your party has proved over and over and over..
...and over again that unless you are worth about 2 million dollars or more, your leadership has a completely different point of view than you do. The are not even the party of of the one percent, instead, they have become the party for the greediest of that already small group that wants to have it ALL. Now you have the proof that many people are loyal to their money first than they are to a country.
