    There are many kinds of Democrats including the very wealthiest Americans, both those who have made their own wealth and those who have inherited wealth. The leaders. They have trained an electorate to depend on them through tenure, unionization and entitlements.

    1) Why don't they deserve them and 2) What are those tax breaks and cuts?

    Last time I checked, rich folks don' qualify for the earned income credit, the way poor people do.
    Last time I checked, rich people don't need the earned income tax credit. So, what's your point? Now, back to the real point of my post, do you feel that rich people deserve special rights, like Mr.Turtle does?

    Most of the people I know are not 'leaders' of the Democratic Party and they do not embody the image you have painted of Democrats. The type of person you have described exists in all parties: some people don't live by 'their wits and independent spirit' by relying on welfare, others rely on their parents monetary support, others rely on their spouses (see 'trophy wife' and 'sugar daddy'). You would develop a more clear understanding of the Democratic Party, its constituents and its policies if you took the time to understand them.

    What special rights do they have?

    Also, why do non-rich people deserve the earned income credit? Seems to me they have a special right to pay no taxes; plus get a four-figure rebate every year. I mean, it's all about one paying one's fair share. Yes?

    I keep hearing that, but I also hear that there was a legit loophole.

    Why are people complaining about this manuever when the manuever they supported was a 3-week flight out of the state. Too late to cry foul, not when your senators were foul chicken that disrupted the democratic process.

    won't mind a bit ... if they chop alll the tax cuts ... seeing as how everyone one of your liberals keep saying that it was a tax cut for the rich..... shouldn't be a problem to just let them all expire should it?

    Canadian healthcare is atrocious. Long waiting rooms and people dying before they recieve care... I like your sarcasm, too.

    However, why do we talk healthcare in a thread about Walker and the unions?
