Letter to the Editor
Republicans are raising lots of money for this election because they need it to mask the bad ideas from the radical far right candidates the Republicans are running this year. They hope to cover of crazy with millions of corporate dollars.
Republicans want to privatize Social Security. The want to run up the debt by extending tax cuts for millionaires. Rand Paul has said that private businesses should be allowed to exclude blacks. Christie O’Donnell thinks scientists are using stem cells to create mice with fully developed human brains. They say that Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment are unconstitutional. Several Republican candidates want to lower or eliminate the minimum wage. They want to reverse health care reform, eliminate consumer protection, reverse wall street reforms that would prevent another bailout. They oppose abortion even for women who are raped. They want us to believe that the solution to America’s problems is to go back to the Bush era policies that created the mess in the first place.
The Republicans positions are so bizarre that they have to take and spend tons of money because without a campaign to bombard us with lies they don’t have a chance of winning election this year. It’s like putting lipstick on a pig, and when you have a lot of pig you have to use a lot of lipstick.
