No money for you

Seven hundred billion dollars for Wall St., not a penny for you and me. Every time you turn around, that's what Republicans are saying.

Even at a time when capital gains taxes are the least of our worries, the oily John Boehner wants to cut them. Has anyone seen a capital gain lately?

No, the long war that the Republicans actually fight every day is not the global war on terror. It's class war. They know that eventually their wealthy base will once again have capital gains - maybe soon if the Democrats don't oversee the bailout closely enough - and then they'll need the tax cuts to start the next bubble.
