"Corporations are people, my friend." ~ Mitt RomneyDo you want to know why the economy has not rebounded? Because the majority of the American people are being pushed in penury and wage slavery. Here's what the Bush/Cheney Years did to America:
"This is an impressive crowd - the haves and the have-more. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base." ~ George W. Bush
“It’s like when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939.” ~ Hedge Fund parasite Stephen Schwarzman correctly defines what would happen if Capital Gains were taxed as normal income.
- Median Income declined outright from 1999 to 2009.At a time when Multi-National Oil Corporations are destroying the oceans, rivers, hills and dales of the world and receiving US Taxpayer dollars to do it, the Republicans are running on eliminating the EPA and all regulations of businesses.
- From 1960 to 2000, manufacturing accounted for 20 million jobs in the U.S. since 2000 we've lost a 1/3rd of those jobs.
- Between 2002 and 2007 2 out of every 3 dollars of Income growth went to Bush's Base
- And even in during Bush's Crash year of 2008, excluding capital gains, the top 1% saw their share of national income rise.
At the same time Faux News, Kudlow & Cramer and every hired Republican punk ass hitman proclaim the lie that 49% or 51% or whatever number they find convenient to demagogue about do not pay taxes;
"And I'm going to tell you one other thing: When did we ever get to a point in America where, we're nearly at the point where fifty percent of Americans don't pay anything in taxes! Nothing!" ~ Sean Hannity.The Republican Party's favorite Presidential Candidates are running on a platform of No Taxes on Corporations. That would be Zero. Corporate Profits have gone up quarter after quarter since the beginning of 2009. Verizon, for instance, reported a pre-tax income of $24.2 Billion in 2009-2010 and received, through U.S. federal income tax loopholes, a $1.3 Billion dollar refund.
"I think it's abysmal that 51% pay no income taxes..." - Orrin Hatch.
Just so you understand that correctly, when poor people who have next to nothing manage not to pay federal income taxes it's a Sean Hannity abomination. But, Corporations who are receiving U.S. government welfare and whose profits have been increasing steadily, since a minor dip caused by the Bush Recession, should have their tax rates reduced to Zero.
This New Republican Taxes could be called the Pleasure of Working for Us Tax.
But, you see that's when the Conservative Fabrication Machine steps in! The Heritage Foundation can be counted on to convince the brain dead and battered conservatives to support more taxes on the poor and the transfer of more U.S. taxpayer dollars to off-shore bank accounts of the Plutocracy.
Don't make Stuart Varney mad you fucking peasant! YOU have a refrigerator! YOU are not Poor! Even if that fridge does not contain milk or eggs or medications. The Cupboard maybe bare, but you have Freedom... If you can't realize that you "Lack a Richness of Spirit."
The entire Republican Party, "Business-firendly" Democrats, and most Conservatives hate America, hate the Middle Class and hate the Poor. Every fiber of the Republican Party is tuned to oppressing and enslaving the American Worker.
The Koch Brothers and their Plutocrats have declared 2012 will be "The Mother of All Battles" as they intend to fully stock the Government with hit men who will implement every possible tactic they can to crush opposition to the Class Massacre while cementing into U.S. law the Rule of the Plutonomy.
