Senator Blunt votes to support Missouri's wealthy
No surprise but our own Republican Senator Roy "Just Stash the Money in My Pocket" Blunt made it public today on his website that he voted down the "Buffet Rule" for taxation. You know the one, it would have meant the people with all the money pay the same tax percentage of all their wealth and income that the middle- and lower-income people do. How very Christian of him, right? But then, what do we expect from the political party that virtually never fails to support the wealthy of us-and corporations--at the expense of all the rest of us without big money?
How disgusting and vile. Not only did he vote it down and then defend it but in his note (see link at bottom) he then goes on to describe how we should get the Keystone XL pipeline going, too, as though that has ANYTHING to do with this vote. Not only does he make sure he keeps his wealthy constituents rich but he then insults the rest of us further by going off on a completely unrelated tangent about making "Big Oil" and anyone who owns their stock even richer. It's shameful. And it's shameless. I warned about voting this greedhead into office. Link: http://blunt.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/news?ID=c7d9b2ee-855c-4660-9b40-c979f9329f7e
