The Bartlett article, in the New York Times, on the hypocrisy of the GOP would be hilarious if it was not true.  The GOP blame the Democrats for the low wage earners, people who don’t pay income taxes  (even though they pay a boat load in Social Security and Medicare taxes) on the credits that the GOP gave them.  While they shout ‘class warfare’ when Democrats want income taxes to rise back to the Clinton rates (you can’t include the 3% Medicare tax on upper incomes if you don’t count them as taxes for the low income folks}   Then stand silently when rich pay no taxes.
