(ChattahBox Political News)—Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) knows which side his bread is buttered on. Yesterday the Minority Leader delivered an impassioned speech on the senate floor, supporting tax cuts for the richest Americans. He reminded his colleagues that our country has been hit hard from a deep recession. And who in America has been suffering the most? The rich. What about the poor and middle class who have lost their homes, lost their jobs and are now making weekly trips to food banks to feed their families? You know, the same people who Republicans have attacked as lazy hobos. No, sorry. According to McConnell, people making over $250,000 a year are “the people who’ve been hit hardest by this recession.”
The Democrats should be pounding on this 24/7 from now until the elections. It encapsulates the entire GOP establishment mindset. The Tea Party may think otherwise but they are little other than mindless foot soldiers for the GOP who have convinced them that the Bizarro economic theory that tax cuts, budget cuts, privatization and deregulation of everything will somehow balance the budget and make us all wealthy, healthy and wise.
