Voices at “First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference”

My Vote CountsVoices at “First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in Nashua, New Hampshire April 18, 2015.” The candidates explain themselves.

  • “We will not win if we just complain about how bad things are.”–Jeb Bush
  • “Large corporations don’t pay taxes but single moms working two jobs do.”–Rick Perry
  • “They’re living paycheck to paycheck. They have what was a great job 10 years ago, but now it doesn’t go far enough. They literally live one unexpected expense away from disaster.”–Marco Rubio
  • “If you want to win elections, you’ve got to get the people who work for the people who own businesses.”–Rand Paul

Is a tax cut, likely accompanied by a cut in benefits, all “single moms working two jobs” need? Are those “living paycheck to paycheck” some unfortunate others or is it the majority of us? “The people who work for the people who own businesses?” Is that a good definition of the 99% of us?

    Every 4 years the GOP “discovers” working people. And on the first Wednesday of November they develop severe memory loss.

    It is to laugh. Holding up populist masks in front of their faces; does their idea of tax cuts prove to be anything but more cuts for corporate taxes? oh, hell no.


  3. Deb Meeker says:

    Nailed it.

    “The most effective leaders we’ve had as presidents overwhelmingly have been effective governors who know how to lead and surround themselves with good people.”–Scott Walker

    Could Walker have been thinking of GWB, Cheney, and Rumsfeld? Or perhaps he was thinking of FDR.


  5. josephurban says:

    I assume he meant Carter and Clinton.

    Walker can begin speaking his mind ( what ever that means) now, as he has been unofficially endorsed by the Koch brother’s billions.
