John Boehner, the champion of lower taxes for the idle rich, the old war horse of the “let them eat cake” privileged class. Want to know what he thinks about tax relief for the middle class? He thinks it’s “chicken sh*t”. At least, that’s how Politico reports the Speaker’s “behind closed doors” characterization of the extension of the payroll tax holiday for middle class Americans. Whether it’s Newt Gingrich promoting the idea that the labor of poor children should be exploited in both industry and public works jobs or John Boehner mocking middle class wage earners, every day the Republican party increasingly demonstrates its contempt for the 99%.
