The power or a small elite(regardless of party) which possess most of the wealth has more power than your government (regardless of party in power) elected by you the people,presumably to run the country in the interest of all the citizens. This group of elites is determined to preserve its privileged position and thus it's wealth. It maintains this through control of media(in many but not all cases),most importantly through the financing of political parties, and the handling of it's vast wealth to influence the fiscal policies of government. They don't get everything, but they do get most of what they want,and it's the little man(like me) who pays the bill in several ways,in a higher tax burden(percentage),more income going to the basics,they or their children fight and die on foreign battlefields(more to the benefit of someone else's interest)...ect

With the Senate Republicans action on Thursday, they exposed their agenda of corporate profit protection at the expense of Americans’ jobs. In one fell swoop, they obeyed the Chamber of Commerce, guaranteed more companies will outsource Americans’ jobs, subsidized outsourcing with taxpayer dollars, provided millions for Romney, created jobs in foreign countries, prevented economic growth, and most importantly, killed millions of Americans’ jobs. Their claim the bill was a political ploy by the Obama Administration is patently false because this is the second time in two years Republicans blocked an anti-outsourcing bill. In 2010 after Republicans blocked a similar bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid commented that the bill was a “simple, common-sense” effort to “keep American jobs here in America” and to “stop forcing taxpayers across the nation to pay for giveaways that reward companies for sending American jobs overseas.” Mitch McConnell said at the time that the bill was “an insult to the millions of Americans who want us to focus on jobs.” Yes, he really said it and since then, he and his job-killing cohorts have taken every step to convince Americans that the GOP is following the will of the people who want Republicans to “focus on jobs” while they ship them overseas.

The Republican focus on jobs since January 2009 has been killing them, not creating them. They voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus), opposed the auto industry bailout, payroll tax cut and extension, all of the President’s jobs bills, and have blocked any new revenue sources that would fund rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure. All of the Republican job-killing measures have as their basis protection of the rich and keeping unemployment figures high, and they are not close to being finished if they win control of the White House and both houses of Congress. One of Romney and Republicans promises is to give corporations more tax cuts and leeway to outsource jobs and the only winners are the corporations and their wealthy investors like Willard Romney.

Is this your opinion, someone else's opinion or can you actually back up any of this nonsense. It makes for entertaining reading but you are rather reputious.

What difference does it make who's opinion it is?

Bottom line, can you prove it is incorrect? Do you have the balls to even attempt to prove it wrong. No. you will just continue showing your arrogance and ignorance.

Talk about "reputious". YOUR SPELLING NOT MINE.

Oh, that reminds me spelling genius?

Its not an opinion its a fact. The republicans who have been controling Congress have done nothing but stand in the way of an economic recovery. How many jobs would have been created by reinvesting in our infrastructure? A lot. And those jobs would have went to working people. Not the suits on wall street. they demonize the unions, who want to stop jobs from going overseas, ensure fair compensation, and safe working conditions.

And they preach the most dumbed down form of politics there is. The politics of fear. You guys will screw your selves to make sure your neighbor doesnt have more than you do.

Demorcats are going to rule this election, and the Republicans will have to wisen up.

A hope that my typing error is not the high point of your day, but I am afraid that it may be the high point of your entire week. Glad it doesn't take much to entertain little minds.

"typing error", LMAO, that was not even close to being spelled correctly. And if it had been, the "high point" of my day, I would have brought that up first not as an after thought.

Any way you guus demonize democrats calling us liberals. Im not liberal, I dont want the Gov to take your guns. I dont think gay marrage should be legal. I dont agree with half of what the democratic party stands for. But it does seem to me that the republicans do want to control more of my personal life.
I go to church I could give a rats ass if my elected official does. But your party thinks thats important.
Your party preaches family values, and then tries to deny birth control coverage for my wife. I got 2 kids thats enough, thats my family value. Both my childern are girls if they get pregnant as teenagers I want them to be able to choose to adopt or have a legal abortion if they want. Not be forced to be pregnant at some young age.
Your party in no way reprensents the America that I value. Ever try to talk politics with a republican you have to wait til Rush tells them what their opinion is.

You liberals have been blaming the republicans since Obama took office when you had both houses of congress and the white house. Now you still control 2/3 yet you continue to blame the 1/3 that you don't control. That is just pathetic. Liberals are the biggest crybabies I have ever seen.

If you know what causes pregnancy then you know how to prevent it. Besides, condoms are cheap and in some cases, free. What you are saying is that you want someone else to pay for the irresponsible choices of others instead of people taking responsibility for their own risky choices. Please tell me just how much of the wealthy's money you are entitled to after they pay the 90% of all taxes they pay. You obviously don't understand the flow of money in and out of a business and what it takes to run a business. If you did you wouldn't be saying things like those in your post. You have obviously bought into the socialist liberal talking points that are dividing America.
