2. And they will. They are RW authoritarians - they need to be TOLD what to do by

3. Remember jobs come first...

AND there is no evidence, zip, zero, zippo, zets, zilch, nil, nix, nada, null, naught, that low tax rates for the rich help create jobs...but lots of historical evidence to the contrary.
