Mind-blowing is not overstatement. The $8 billion tax break Wells Fargo received, corporate profits at a 60-year high while corporate tax rates near a 60-year low are a few nuggets that will cause many a beer bottle to be popped open.
You must pour your favorite libation, sit back in your most comfortable chair and click the link to read the truly mind-blowing facts. Then remember the GOP insists our economy cannot be revived without supporting Corporate America. It is the main plank of the Republican platform despite these 13 mind-blowing facts. Fact-checked facts not FIX News facts.
Please check this AlterNet article out, and keep it in the back of your mind every time you hear GOP and Tea Party-ers proclaim they alone have the solutions to our country’s problems. They probably should since they caused most of them, but we can’t expect them to take any responsibility.
We can, however, better understand how important entitlement reform is if we ever expect the United States to prosper by a middle class working hard, earning a fair wage and paying less in taxes.
All the more reason you do not want to forget these facts anytime you head to a voting booth, unless you are part of the 1% who won’t find anything mind-blowing about this article.
