The thinking in this article is exactly why the Republicans lost the election and it is really too bad. I couldn't vote for a Democrat for any reason because they don't respect life or virtually any other lib reason they use. But continually using the fraudulent argument about the '47%' and 'entitlements' when you don't seem to even understand their meaning is shameful for a Conservative. It just brings tears to your eyes to listen to people crying about the wealthy having to pay. Maybe we should put a base of double the poverty level as the only write off and see how they like actually paying without their created loopholes. Those are the same folks who took your jobs overseas and then don't return the money over here and pay the taxes.
