    Or does he disagree with the Republican party's position on tax cuts for the middle class?
    Yesterday he said he'd vote for a package of middle class only tax cuts, but today????

    Republicans announced today that they care more about the richest 2% of Americans than they do about middle class Americans.
    They will oppose the passage of new tax cuts for the middle class, in order to make a statement to the American people that they care more about tax cuts for the rich than they do about tax cuts for the middle class.
    SO much more - that they're willing to kill a new package of middle class tax cuts that are desperately needed as the recovery from the Bush recession continues to progress too slowly.
    They don't care if middle class Americans are hurt by their votes against a middle class tax cut - as long as they can send a clear message to their rich Republican base that they care about and will continue to fight for - the rich.

    At least now we know who's side the Repubs are on.

    Yes, they are on the side of hard working people who deserve to keep more of what they earn, regardless of their degree of success. icon_smile.gif

    Nope.
    As their own words reveal - they only care about the richest 2% of Americans.
    The rest of the country gets the shaft from the Repubs.

    If the Repubs have their way, 98% of Americans will see their taxes go UP.

    But, as long as the contributions keep flowing into the RNC coffers from the rich, the Repubs will keep fighting for the rich, and sticking it to the rest of us.

    I wouldn't believe a word that Republican John Boehner says because he changes anyway the wind blows. I don't want him in a powerful leadership position because all he will do is sabotage the desparately needed reforms that would help repair the severe economic damage caused by the right wing neocons and the military industrial complex during the horrendous Bush-Cheney era.

    Please define "hard working." The man or woman who has an hourly job, or the CEO who earns millions with stock options and a golden parachute, even if he fucks-up royally and wrecks the company?

    I have no doubt some executives work hard. But aren't they compensated enough? How about ordinary hard working Americans? Do they not also get your sympathy?

    It seems to me that in your Republican economic model, it's the hard-working middle class that gets the short end of the stick. Except for the crumbs that fall from the tables of the mega-rich. Not a model I can endorse.

    A litterbox would be a more appropriate place for SB to deposit his daily load of right-wing BS posts.
