Here is a direct quote from the first president I ever voted for: “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. … Their number is negligible and they are stupid.” ~Dwight D. Eisenhower~ (Little Did He Know He Was Describing The T Party) I might point out that during Ike's two terms the tax structure was such that anyone earning more than $300,000 a year paid 91% of the excess to the government. That's back when the Republicans balanced their budgets....before Reagan and the Bushes. I quit voting for the party of corporations and the rich after I voted for Reagan in 1984.
