-- When Democrats tried to pass the "Buffet Rule", which would have
resulted in the rich and super rich paying a little bit more, the Republicans killed it quickly. And when the law to keep student loans interest rates from doubling in July, the Republicans basically said we are willing to keep student loans interest rates low, but in order to do that we have to take a way some healthcare benefits for women -- you can't have both -- healthcare for women and affordable education for their children. Women have enough already. I mean, my God, we gave them the vote didn't we -- and now they want everything.
Is it just me or are the Republicans preparing themselves to disappear into political irrelevance?
I don't see the long-term viability of a party that rigorously -- hysterically, you might say -- champi0ns the financial well-being of the top 1% who don't need it over the well-being of the 99% -- who will in the final analysis determine which party governs America.
All that has to happen for the Republican Party to be tossed in the dust-bins of history
is the American people learning that the only way to improve their lives and the lives of their children and grandchildren is that they go to the p0ll booths and vote for politicians that do things that benefit them and theirs while they are in office.
