    your parents in jail and leave you to cleaning commodes at MacDonalds.  Republicans don't want a thriving, well educated middle class.  That's their worst nightmare.  Republicans want a thriving, tax-free small group of billionaires, surrounded by servants who are thrilled just to get enough to eat.  Republicans HATE THE MIDDLE CLASS.  That's why the middle class has shrunk in huge numbers while they've been in charge.  That's why the poverty level is higher than it's been in 50 years.  They would do away with minimum wage and Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare and SCHIP and consumer protection and child labor laws if they only could.  That's always been their plan, from the moment any of those "entitlements" were put through Democratic congresses.

    I'm so happy you're already benefitting from the Obama Administration and a Democratic majority in Congress.  Let's make sure it stays that way, at least until 2016!!!

      Sorry if comment seemed off the wall but that is exactly what your comment made me think of
