Any Republicans who did not vote are idiots. These folks handed the election to Obama. Maybe our last chance as Blacks and Latinos will never vote againtst the party that gives them their benefits. The Republican choice of work hard,pay taxes, succeed is not desired by those who get a governemt check(the 47%). These people will NEVER vote to cut their benefit and neither would I. Those of us who are still paying for the others may have lost our last opportunity for fairness.
