I am so sick of hearing Republicans like John Boehner say they are there to “represent the people”. Bullshit! They are there to represent special interest. If it was the other way around then they would listen to poll results like this:
Raising taxes on the rich beats out cuts to defense spending, Medicare or Social Security as U.S. adults' top preference on how to close the deficit, according to a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.
Sixty-one percent of Americans said that increasing taxes to the wealthy should be the first step toward balancing the budget.
Yet the Republicans were willing to let tax cuts for the middle and lower class expire in order to protect tax cuts for the top 2% of this country. The Republicans are nothing but the whores of the ultra-rich.
