"Last night, every single Republican senator except Susan Collins (ME) voted to protect the top 0.2 percent of taxpayers — just 345,532 millionaires– from paying a small surtax on their income over $ 1 MILLION in order to extend and expand the payroll tax cut for 160 MILLION working Americans."
"This is, in a word, outrageous. And it just goes to show how much harm the Republicans are willing to do to our economy and the 99 Percent in order to protect the top 1 Percent from paying one red cent more in taxes."
Who Does Your Senator Stand With: The 1 Percent or the 99 Percent?
Go see for your self:
"After voting down the president’s plan to extend and expand the payroll tax cut because they’ll do anything to protect the wealthiest 1 Percent, Republicans then surprised nearly everyone and voted down their own plan to extend the payroll tax cut. That GOP plan — paid for not by asking millionaires to pay even a dime more, but instead by laying off more than 200,000 federal workers and freezing the pay of the rest — went down overwhelmingly on 20-78 vote."
The republicans not only bad mouth the OWS like the Troll sympathizers here do, they do intend to destroy the middle class because they are shills for the rich and have always favored them as their rich job creators which has been their consistent lie. The facts don't hold up. That's why they have to incessantly repeat the lie in their twisted narrative.
Here's a thread where I exposed this job creation myth:
