64. You haven't been paying attention if you think most Republicans
want the most people possible to be wealthy.

If you think that I'm wrong, I have a tax code I'd like to show you, and some Haliburton contracts you need to see, and an energy policy you need to look at, and a list of big Republican donors you need to contemplate, and a defunding of the SBA, and a savings and loan crisis, and a pension fund rip off..etc...etc..etc...
