Why do Republicans want to continue raising the deficit to give tax breaks to corporations?
They preach they want to lower the deficit but tax breaks for corporations are the #1 reason why we are in this situation. They rather cut education for children and social security / medicare for seniors. Meanwhile they want tax breaks for the richest of the richest and huge corporations that drive small business out of business that are proven to not create jobs (Just look at the past 10 years or so). I am an independent and I am voting Democrat in 2012, because I love America, not the corporations.
