Quote of the Day, Jr.
"I guess that's what business does."
-- Eric Cantor on why, during the current FAA shutdown, the nation's airlines are pocketing the billions in tax money they'd normally be paying instead of passing the savings along to consumers
Never has so much been summed up so perfectly in so few words. You know what happens when you give very rich people and very big corporations a tax break these days? Why, they put it back into the economy or use it in a way that will otherwise benefit average Americans, right? Wrong. They hoard it to further increase their comfy bottom line. And how do today's Republicans feel about that kind of thing? Sorry, America -- suck it. That's the way the yacht sails. But by all means keep nodding your heads in agreement when we tell you that naked sociopathy and unrestrained greed are what our forefathers would have wanted for this nation.
