That this would be the Republican response:
"Tea party-backed Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is urging Americans to be
"skeptical" of income taxes, the estate tax and President Barack Obama's
health care reform law because of last year's terrorist attack in
Benghazi and a National Security Agency (NSA) program that collects
millions of phone records each day"
As I have pointed out so many times, the Republican party is nothing but a corrupt tool of the hyper-rich. Its members do not give a damn what happens to this country, as long as the interests of the rich around the world (whether American citizens or not) are served. The proof, as we have seen again and again, is no matter what happens, their answer is always the same thing: more money for rich people.
Yet, our so-called mainstream press goes on, decade after decade, ignoring what is right in front of their faces, even when these people inevitably do more damage to us than Al Qaida could ever dream of doing.
And anyone who is willing to speak the truth, even an unimpeachable source like Nobel Prize winning Princeton economics professor Paul Krugman, is derided as an out of control partisan lunatic- if they are ever allowed to speak out in public at all.
