I can't understand why so many people of the 99% are voting republicans ... OK, they wan to reduce the taxes, but the taxes of the 1% ... It is unsocial to reduce taxes (which depend on what you earn, what means that it depends at your strength) and to increase the dues, private medical expends, education costs for everybody. This means to help the 1% - while the 99% have to pay for.
It is NOT SOCIALISTIC but SOCIAL to care for the poorer part of the society.
Glad to be born in Europe - health insurance, unlimited illness days, payed vacation, free education, no college loans. The price is to pay higher taxes for paying back my education and to support the poorer part of the society. The benefit is that, if I lose my job I can trust in a social net of benefits, so I won't lose insurance, car or house.
I'm loyal with the 99% percent - but can't understand the american voters. Can anyone explain me why many of the 99% vote for the supporters of the 1% ? Is it 'cause the Tea-Party is supported with billions of USD from the WallStreet billionairs ? Is no one thinking why these billionairs are spending this money ?
