I do not like this Uncle Sam,

I do not like his health care scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks,

or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals,

I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker, Nan ,

I do not like this 'YES WE CAN.'

I do not like this spending spree,

I'm smart, I know that nothing's free.

I do not like your smug replies,

when I complain about your lies.

I do not like this kind of hope.

I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!

Most republicans I know live decade lives. They go out 10-20 years on investments and plan for the VERY long term. One I know made an investment that will take 100 years (99 years to be exact)... Its Democrats who live daily lives.. Everything is for today.. gotta have it today, need it today.. spend it today.. We all know where that leads.. dont we?

Point taken when you're talking about people.

It's the Wall Street - Government tax system with which I have problems.

I just don't like that structure, or the mentality that rides on it.

Well thank god I have the democrats to protect from those evil corporations....

Seriously, to the OP....you never check the corporate donation records do you?
Care to guess which african american from Chicago was their #1 donation recipient during the election cycle? No. It wasn't Oprah.
Um, you know Hillary was on the Board of Walmart?
Wall Street bankers in cabinet positions?

Really, when you are this brainwashed it just makes ripping you off easier because they are protecting you from the other guy. LMAO.

Well, at least we have guys like John Kerry to protect us from those fatcats with corporate ties.

Ugh. It's moderates like me that can't even begin to grasp the delusions of the extreme left and right around here. Up is down...left is right...just tell us want to think party leaders we are yours to command without hesitation or thought.

Many more Republicans have the excess income above daily expenses to be able to afford long term investments. Many more Democrats, because of the way the system is rigged, do not and probably never will. Why should these folks, already paying taxes on their meager incomes, have to pay more so the people with large inheritances can pay less?

People with high incomes can hide income, investments and inheritances using the complexities of tax law created by Republican Politicians.

Not really. This is your own mental construct where you reinforce your opinions. It makes everything really easy when you think this way or else you'd be forced to see shades of grey.

Cognitive dissonance at it's finest.

Big Business, GOP Complain That Health Reform Slashes Corporate Welfare
Where to start.

First, it seems your animus is directed at conservatives, who you view as being on the right. If so, then you are mistaken that we like the idea of redistribution of our hard earned dollars so they can be handed over to big corporations.

Second, if you are directing this animus at GOP politicians, then you need to also direct it at the crony capitalists in the democratic party, who are redistributing our hard earned money over to big corporations like GE and GM and Fannie Mae and so on and so on.

Keeping health care may be used as a retention benefit to keep the best and brightest. Pensions were once used like that but very few have pensions anymore.
Once it becomes obvious to companies, that they are paying double for 0bamnaCare, once for an employee health care plan, and again for 0bamaCare, they will drop their employees health care program, because continuing it would be seen as a loss.

Well, maybe the corporations could drop ObamaCare.

Corporations are Big Persons. The Supreme Court said so.
