A Republican Pledge to America: Take from The Poor and Give To The Rich

A Republican GOP Pledge to America

We were on track to pay down our debt by some 2.3 trillion dollars by 2011 the day Bill Clinton left office while still paying for all of our social safety nets just fine and even saving some money on the side. 

George W. Bush with republican control gave away more than that in tax refunds shortly after taking office. He gave away almost 3 trillion dollars that we did not even have, with most of it going the to top couple of percent. That is also when we started borrowing from China and others so drastically.  Then they slashed taxes for the wealthy, made outsourcing more profitable, lied to Invade Iraq for war profiteering, invaded Afghanistan...  
We have fired over 35 thousand teachers since the republicans cut taxes and screwed up the tax codes. 2/3's of our most profitable corporations do not pay one dime in federal taxes. General Electric made a 14.3 billion dollar profit in 2011 and did not pay a penny in federal taxes. 

My challange to anyone who vote republican is this. Can you even name any policies the GOP has passed in the last 30 years that actually helps the American worker? They have voted to weaken the working people of this country every chance they get. They weaken unions, reject higher minimum wages, weaken work place safety... But nowhere do they ever pass anything that helps the worker instead of the employer. Can you name anything that helps to educate our children or protect us from Wall Street and the banks? I mean can you even name anything at all they do for the majority?

They will not even allow a vote on a jobs bill let alone offer a compromise or negotiate. Hell they even blocked a bill that would have put thousands of veterans to work that was 100% paid for by fines from Medicare fraud. But oh God forbid anything might make Obama look good. They are traitors cut and dry. Their number one goal was/is to make Obama fail. How do you do that? You make the American people suffer as much as you possibly can hoping they are dumb enough to blame Obama and not see how they have sabotaged the recovery at every turn.

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term President.”
~Mitch McConnell, admitting what the only priority Republicans have had since 2008.

Not create jobs... Not help with the recovery of America. Although I think protecting the tax cuts for the rich might have been more important. I mean it is the ONLY thing they have accomplished.

“Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that.” ~Mitt Romney
