    Sorry, folks. Those programs that were benefiting the poor and middle class? They're now on the chopping block. The GOP spent your money on tax cuts for the uber-rich and now needs to tighten the government belt.

The GOP always complain about Democrats being into income redistribution. Yes, the Dems want to make the poor less poor sometimes at the expense of the rich, but that is far more admirable than making the poor even poorer while making the rich even richer. I say this as someone whose income is in the top 10 percentile in the U.S. Republican policies personally benefit me more but make society as a whole far worse.
