Republicans for the little guy? Ha2005-02-10 12:32:43mrgooch

Jeez, people, how'd you get hoodwinked into thinking that the Republican Party supported the welfare of the little guy? You expected them to turn your blue collar white? You fell for their morality line? Morality and big business don't spend too much time together. I just read somewhere that Missouri Republican politicians actually were thinking about giving away tax dollars directly to businesses to get them to locate in the State. Of course, they use the line that businesses bring jobs. They want us to work for slave wages diminished further by our tax dollars that embellish the coffers of corporate heads holding down obscenely huge salaries. And you expect them to have money left over to bolster Medicaid? Have you not read "What's the Matter With Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America" by Thomas Frank?
