  •  Let's call it what it is: A Tax on Middle Class (3+ / 0-)

    It's difficult to stick up for democrats when all they want to do is slash your benefits and make you pay more services, while giving corporations, defense, and the 1% a free ride.

    I'll vote for Dems because the alternative is abhorrent, but I'm seriously straining to see what the distinction between GOP and the Dems is on economic policy. Free trade agreements? check. Solve everything with tax cuts? check. Raise revenues on the backs of the middle class? check.
