What the ditto-heads don't know they're defending

OK, so the top 25 hedge fund managers took home an average of over a BILLION dollars per person in 2009.

Thanks to Republican economic policies, these folk pay LESS of a percentage of their income than you. Middle class - around 30%. Hedge fund managers - 15%.

Let that sink in. A BILLION dollars in one year. Massive tax break from the Republicans, funded by taxes on the middle class. Massive donations to the Republican Party from those managers. Republican Party using that money to whip their base into a frenzy to convince them that they're on the side of average folk.
