Robert Reich: The Republican Strategy "The Republican strategy is to split the vast middle and working class -- pitting unionized workers against non-unionized, public-sector workers against non-public, older workers within sight of Medicare and Social Security against younger workers who don't believe these programs will be there for them, and the poor against the working middle class. By splitting working America along these lines, Republicans want Americans to believe that we can no longer afford to do what we need to do as a nation. They hope to deflect attention from the increasing share of total income and wealth going to the richest 1 percent while the jobs and wages of everyone else languish." Thats right fucktards, that is your strategy, but we've been on to your bullshit. Divide American and split the cash with rich at the top, you're all pieces of shit. Public employees are not and have never been the fault for state budget fuck ups, you want to know the real reason? You fucked up, shitty Repugs doing dirty deals with private companies cutting taxes and draining the state of much needed money.
