At what point do Republicans take the huge taxpayer tax breaks away from a company's like Apple ?

Warren Buffett himself admitted his secretary pays more money in taxes they he himself pays.

When is enough enough for Republicans subsidizing Warren Buffett's billion dollar businesses with our tax dollars ?

Democrat's are all for helping up and coming businesses, but not Corporate Welfare for rich and already successful.

Why exclude the extreme right wing teabgger views of your sitting Republican Pa. State Senator Mike Folmer ?

Citizen Mike wants to abolish current healthcare mandates of healthcare insurers selling care in this state.

If left to Mike Folmer's current legislation like childhood immunizations and routine gynecological exam costs that are currenlty covered these costs would be totally eliminated by Mike and become out of pocket costs fro women or parents of young children.

Not to mention that Citizen Mike Folmer wants to abolish current state healthcare manadates that require healthcare insurers selling in Pa. to cover the adopted children on their parents healthcare plans. Even if the adopted parents pays 100% of theid healthcare cocts Mike Folmer legislation would exclude this adopted child from getting healthcare coverage.

This is just the tip of the iceburg with Mike Folmer's mandated healtcare cuts.

The last thing this country needs is to go back even further then the Bush Era Agenda to this country. This is the path Mike Folmer wants everyone with his radical teabaggging agenda.

After news of Google tax dodges, Obama raises money with Google execs

On the day it was reported that Google uses income shifting techniques known by such arcane names as the "Double Irish" and the "Dutch Sandwich" to avoid paying taxes on its foreign profits, President Obama attended an intimate, high-dollar fundraiser at the Palo Alto, California home of a top Google executive. He didn't mention Google's tax tricks, according to a White House transcript of his remarks.

The Democratic fundraiser, which guests each paid $30,400 to attend, was at the home of Marissa Mayer, one of Google's best-known executives. At the lavish home, which was "decked out in Halloween decorations on steroids," according to a White House pool report, Obama spoke briefly and had nothing but praise for Google. He spoke fondly of his first visit to the company when he was an Illinois state senator.

In the past, Obama has been sharply critical of companies that move their income around the globe to avoid paying taxes. But with Google, whose employees give an estimated 75 percent of their political contributions to Democrats -- well, the president didn't have much to say about taxes.

One thing is for sure. Republican Mike Folmer's campaign cash sure isn't coming from individual citizen's.

It's coming from Republcan Big Businesses like everyone would expect.

Citizen Mike my butt.
