The GOP's war on the middle class

I know this is from the Alternet, but still a pretty good look at how Republicans plan to improve the economy by lowering middle and working class wages more. This on top of the news that GE paid no corporate taxes and actually got a tax deduction (paid negative taxes) is just more evidence that Republicans only care about those with power and wealth. The worker and the middle class are just drones to sell stuff to, and to hire for minimum wage (until they can get rid of that too) jobs.

That entire GE thing is amazing, especially since we are told that corporations are not hiring because their taxes are so high. Turns out that during a year that GE paid negative taxes, they also laid off a bunch of American workers. Maybe that isn't the issue at all.
