The GOP Tax Scam Is Backfiring With Their Biggest Donors

Everybody knew the GOP tax scam passed last December was not needed.  The economy was doing just fine and didn’t need a stimulus.  The government deficits were already too large, and the U.S. needed more revenue, not less revenue from taxes.  And certainly the super-rich beneficiaries of the tax cut bill didn’t need any more money.  The concentration of wealth among the super-rich has never been greater in this country.  The rich were already getting richer, and didn’t need any more help from the government to feather their nests. read more

GOP Governors Slash Education To Grow Their Ignorant Base 

Because Republicans depend on "the widespread ignorance of objective reality," their fascist threat to democracy is only succeeding due to the abundance of ignorance and gross stupidity of America's uneducated citizenry.

Despite Obama’s National Economic Success Republican State Economies Are Failing   

Republicans ran on, and won big with, their claim that the GOP is "the party of solutions" founded on conservative pro-growth economic policies, deregulation, and tax cuts for the rich they claimed were more successful than anything "hapless" Democrats or Obama could ever hope to achieve.

2nd Court Slams Brownback For Underfunding Education To Expedite Kochs’ Tax Cuts

Now that Republicans control both houses of Congress, Americans should brace themselves for a serious Koch-style assault on revenue and government agencies. Last year, Mitch McConnell told Kansas Governor Sam Brownback that Republicans were panting to enact a Koch-Kansas economic assault on America that Brownback imposed by giving the rich monumental tax breaks at the expense of the state government and residents. At the time, McConnell swooned over Brownback’s trickle-down massacre and told him “It’s exactly what we want to do here in Washington, but we can’t do it yet only controlling the House.” With control of the House and Senate, Republicans can proceed with the same reckless abandon for the government and it is probable that like Kansas, public education is in for some seriously major funding cuts. read more
