Republican hypocrisy …A message from Jim Dean from 2011 and damn if things have yet to change

Republicans only care about one thing — tax cuts. It’s the only thing they talk about.

When Americans demand jobs — Republicans say “tax cuts.”

When Democrats take action on education, healthcare and job creation — Republicans say “tax cuts.”

When people demand Wall Street be held accountable for wrecking the economy — Republicans say “tax cuts.”

Republicans are obsessed with cutting taxes, but now that Democrats have put forward a payroll tax cut that will put real money in the pockets of working Americans, Republicans say “No!”

Republicans are hypocrites that only care about lining the pockets of their big-money friends and it’s time we called them out for it.

We’re demanding answers. Click here to ask Republicans in Congress — Why do you hate tax cuts for working families?

Republicans have been getting a free pass on this too for too long. It’s time that we stand up and called them out for propping up the super rich while pushing working families down.

Sign the petition today and we’ll back it up with an aggressive campaign to demand answers from Republicans. We’ll deliver your signatures not just to every Republican in Congress, but to every Republican running for president and demand answers in front of the media. We’ll make calls to their offices. We’ll do whatever it takes to expose Republican tax hypocrisy.

Join us now and demand answers.

Republicans need to stop flip-flopping on tax cuts when it comes to working families and figure out where they stand.

Thank you for everything you do.
