GOP says no new taxes for the rich. We got to keep them loop holes in place. Now we can't take away the rich play things. Like super expensive cars & yachs. Their parties at the casinos. Their expensive mansions and hired help. Their expensive vacations and resorts. My that would be so terrible if they had to cut back on their lavish life style by a little.
