    Seems to be one of the GOP's "dirty little secrets" they forget to mention. When you give money to the top 12 largest US corporations and to oil companies, that money comes from the middle class. It's a "tax increase" on the middle class.

    When Republicans wanted the government to clean up after BP because it was an "accident", they were working to shift the cost to the middle class.

    On Morning Joe, Paul Ryan lied again and again. First, new jobs do NOT come from "small business", they come from "new business". Besides, Republicans saying they support small business is BS. They never have and never will. They only supports large business and corporations. You only need to follow their policies to know that. Because corporations are people my friend.

    Another lie, if someone's tax rate is 14% and you close the loopholes, their rate is NOT 25%. Only now, they are paying more of the 14%. But it's STILL 14%.

    This Republican "Let 'em Die" Party with the fringe on top, is no friend to the middle class. Their policies, no matter how well they word them are intended to squeeze what ever they can from America to feed a few wealthy elite. They fail under close scrutiny or examination.

    None of these are secrets. They are delusions.

    Mostly the GOP has foisted unpaid taxes onto the future taxpayer.

    But in their defence they could never have done that with the aid and assistance of the Democrats.

    huh..I thought you were going to explain how it's the middle class that's responsible for paying for corporate subsides?

    Why do you think the democrats are the ones against corporate welfare?

    Isn't it the GOP that's says get rid of the loopholes, subsides, and lower the rates, so the government can stop picking winners and losers?

    You know.

    This is the conservative meme. And it's complete bullshit. While we have a divided government we do have a government in which at one time or another one party is the one that leads the agenda. While it's up to the other party to offer up opposition views and perform checks...it's also up to them to follow that agenda.

    The GOP thought they could have wars, new departments and new entitlements while cutting taxes. They were wrong. But it's on them..no one else.

    And what they should be doing now..is helping the President to pay down those debts as well as fixing the economy they fucking broke.

    Here is a news flash for you. Polititions say what they think you want to hear, not the truth. Most are a bunch of cowardly vagina's cause to tell the truth could get you boo'ed in a debate.

    Truth is our government, both left and right, only support big business. The population, and small business along with it, has been marginalized and managed for the last 20 years. A basic economics textbook explains this, and they even have a word for it, its called being captured. (meaning division of government being captured by business)

    They both support subsidizing huge business to, thats why last year our top 3 coporations profited more money then what all corporations in the united states paid in taxes.

    I say end welfare for all corporations. Then its time to look at welfare for people, only the most needy people deserve help from the government. Ron Paul is the only candidate that can be trusted to do anything about this. 20 years of voting to limit the power of government and limit its spending.

    But it's not class warfare. Class warfare is only when you are sticking up for the bottom 95%...
