  •  The GOP also hurts my customers (7+ / 0-)

    Let's say the GOP really does do something to "help" us. Maybe it's a tax cut, or they slashed a frustrating regulation. The burden of that nearly always falls on the backs of the middle class, precisely the people we need as our customers. Every dollar out of their pocket, every job lost, is one fewer customer of ours.

    So even putting aside the moral case of helping each other. (Which, for me, is sufficient, but not sufficient to many of my rugged individualist peers.) It makes absolutely no business sense to impoverish your customers.

    I would rather double my revenue than get a 5% tax cut. That's called arithmetic.
