Republicans Are Looking Out For Your Interests....Except If You Are A Middle Class Working Person

Here go the Republicans again....stimulating the economy in the whole way they know how....cutting taxes on the wealthy and leading middle class working people to work longer and harder to keep up!

Today, Rep. Eric Cantor (VA), the chief deputy Republican whip in the House, unveiled his proposal to stimulate the economy. His legislation — the so-called Middle Class Job Protection Actdoes nothing for the middle class. Instead, it reduces the corporate tax rate by 28 percent.
At a press conference today unveiling the stimulus proposal, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) justified the conservative plan to give tax breaks to corporations — instead of working Americans — by arguing that people actually like working long hours:
I am so proud to be from the state of Minnesota. We’re the workingest state in the country, and the reason why we are, we have more people that are working longer hours, we have people that are working two jobs.
Bachmann’s version of the American Dream is apparently working two full-time jobs and struggling to get by.

Damn!!!! Sneaky

As it is, corporations already cash in enough in every form-and then a tax break on top of that. What next; a raffle to see who gets subsidized.
