ACTION ALERT: Stop Paul Ryan & Mitt Romney From Writing Checks to Millionaires

Do you make $160,000 a year? I sure don’t.

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan recently voted to give a huge tax cut to millionaires and billionaires—effectively handing the rich a $160,000 check, which is more than I make in a year and probably more than you make too.

Mitt Romney isn’t any better. He wants to double down and give an even bigger tax break to millionaires.

The Bush tax cuts for the richest 2 percent likely will be up for a vote in December. To get our nation back on track, we need to focus on jobs and economic security for the middle class, not on wasteful tax cuts for the richest 2 percent of Americans.

When the rich get special tax breaks, the rest of us end up having to make up the difference.

Millionaires like Romney and Ryan have made out really well and they will make out even better under their proposal to give another $160,000 tax cut to the richest 2 percent of Americans.

But not the middle-class families that are the backbone of our country, folks like us, who work hard, but want it to be just a little bit easier to get ahead.

We need to restore some basic priorities. We need Congress to focus on creating jobs and raising wages for the middle class, rather than cutting $160,000 checks for millionaires.

I will never understand why anyone in the lower or middle classes would ever want either of these people in the White House. They don't really even try to hide their love/favoritism toward the upper class. How does it make sense to help the rich?? Maybe their morals dictate differently than mine.

Mine too Amy ~ and I agree with you.  I have several friends and family members who fully support the GOP because of their stand on abortion, that's it, they don't open their eyes to what is really going on.  And what gets me the most is the fact that most of the people I know who support the GOP are women ~ the living, breathing beings the GOP hates most.
