Have you heard of Senator Mike Lee? Neither have we, all of these rich white guys look alike to us because we are reverse racist/sexists. Anyway, he has made it his business to stand out among the sea of white male GOP senators by going on Mike Huckabee’s radio show and something extra stupid (well, RELATIVELY extra stupid) about Poors and Job Creators and taxes.
LEE: People need to understand that the reason we worry about raising taxes on anyone – even raising taxes on the rich – it’s not that we’re looking out for the rich, it’s not that we’re concerned that the rich won’t be able to fend for themselves, because they will. It’s because we worry about the consequences that will inevitably result from that action and that will hit the poorest among us the hardest.
No of COURSE he isn’t looking out for the rich; he’s looking out for Grover Norquist, duh. HA just kidding, he’s looking out for the rich. Here he is, for example, on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” talking about how he wants to “broaden the base” and get some “revenue enhancements” by “closing loopholes” and “stabilizing” the revenue stream. And here his endorsement on the home page of the “Club for Growth.”
Anyway, thank GOD we Poors have Mike Lee looking out for us by looking out for the Job Creators.
