Real Difference Between Dems and Repubs

Posted by Matt aka Bear

Kristof in the NYTimes opines:
"...the Democratic Party's first priority should be to reconnect withthe American heartland."I'm writing this... without knowing the election results. But whetherJohn Kerry's supporters are now celebrating or seeking asylum abroad,they should be feeling wretched about the millions of farmers, factoryworkers and waitresses who ended up voting - utterly against their own interests - for Republican candidates."One of the Republican Party's major successes over the last fewdecades has been to persuade many of the working poor to vote for taxbreaks for billionaires. Democrats are still effective onbread-and-butter issues like health care, but they come across in muchof America as arrogant and out of touch the moment the discussion shifts to values."

Here's a real difference between Dems and Repubs. The Dems don't care if you get a tax break, they just don't want one for the rich. Repubs don't care if the rich get a tax break, as long as they get one too. While the Repubs could be classified as anti-tax, the Dems are anti-rich. And thats just not a view that most of America shares.
