Who’s really the richest?
This is in response to Dennis Thompson’s letter to the editor blaming the Republican agenda for all the country’s ills and claiming the Republican Party is the party of the super rich.
Research shows that of the top 10 richest senators , seven are Democrats. Of the top ten richest House members, seven are also Democrats. The top 10 richest people in America — they are all liberals who supported Obama. The richest lawyers in America donated 75 percent to liberals and 25 percent to conservatives.
Since Jan 2007, the Democrats have been in either majority control or 2/3 control of the government. The GOP just took over control of the House in January 2011, but the Democrats still control 2/3. (Senate and White House.) Research has shown that the GOP receives the majority of its contributions from middle-class taxpayers, usually $50 per contribution.
More examples of Liberal leadership besides Washington, DC, is California, Chicago, New York City, Newark and Detroit, which the taxpayers are bailing out of bankruptcy. Mr Thompson seems to forget that his beloved unions have some of the richest people in America running them.
Who would want to punish a hard-working taxpayer for working and earning money and then wanting to leave it to his family? Only envious liberals who mismanaged their money over their lifetime and have nothing to leave their family except some Newnan Times articles with their name on them.
