Most of us have known for a while, that Republicans represent the rich, famous and powerful.
But now they have bluntly, blatantly and shamelessly shoved it into the faces of the poor and middle class.
Why else would the Republicans care about lower taxes for the wealthy? They really don't expect us to believe that it would hurt our economy if the rich had to pay a few more dollars in taxes! We may be poor, but we aren't stupid!
The cutoff was at $200,000 yearly income for individuals ($250,000 for couples), for tax relief to "not so fortunate Americans" as part of the stimulus relief package. $250,000 is more than the average American makes in 5 years and more than a lower income American makes in their lifetime (well, in 20 years)!
Still, Republicans advocate more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires because that is who comprises or funds their party.
The GOP has stuck its feet in the faces of the American people by holding up unemployment benefits, and all other legislation for that matter, until they get more tax cuts for their filthy-rich supporters.
The GOP has held millions of American workers and their families hostage until everyone cries "uncle" and agrees to pay $60 billion in tax handouts for millionaires.
More than a million jobless American workers have lost their only source of income, and the number will rise to 2 million by Christmastime if the GOP doesn't get its way.
Some say the White House hasn't fought hard enough to end the tax giveaways for the super-rich. That may be so. But who created this problem? The GOP. Who is fighting so hard for the top 2 percent that they don't care about putting the unemployed and their kids out in the street in the dead of winter, or taking holiday presents out of kids' stockings? Republicans. Yes, that's the harsh real-world reality.
I don't want to turn this into a political blog, but this is a conspiracy. In fact, the collaboration of the Republican party is perhaps the biggest conspiracy in history, ever.
What do you think? Should the tax cut be for everybody, or just for those making $250,000 per year or less?
