They want to further cut important government services and cut programs that help feed the families of the working poor who are exploited with low wages by our economic system. They prefer to take food out of the mouths of poor children and the elderly rather than increase the share paid by the rich. Meanwhile, they vote to give billions of dollars of subsidies to oil corporations, the most profitable corporations in the world.
In the upcoming months don't expect them to close the loopholes that the rich and their tax lawyers use to avoid paying their fair share. Don't expect them to do anything about the corporations that make billions in profits and pay nothing. They certainly won't do anything about the corporations that have a mailbox on some island and call that their headquarters.
Expect them to continue to tell their lies, half-truths and misrepresentations of the facts. They tell us we should reduce the taxes on the rich so more jobs will be created.
The ridiculous righters never allow facts and knowledge to get in the way of their ideology and their fight for the rich, the powerful, and the corporations. They will continue the fight to create and even greater plutocratic-fascist government while they talk about rights and democracy. They are defined by immense hypocrisy.
