Good Luck With That, Dude.

Apparently this is conservatives’ idea of minority outreach:

While discussing potential Republican outreach efforts toward African-Americans during the November 14 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, guest host Jason Lewis stated: “[T]his whole notion of taxing — taxing America’s labor — you know, I don’t know how else you describe what this sordid experience of slavery was when you take away somebody’s ability to engage in the marketplace with the fruits of their labor.” Lewis later added: “We need to go into the African-American community there on cultural issues. And they should be there on taxes, because they know what it’s like to have to work for free. And during the times of slavery, we targeted black folks. Well, now I guess it’s OK to target wealthy folks. Either way, you’re taking something that doesn’t belong to you.

Yep, taxing the rich is exactly like slavery.  Who knew that rich people and black people had so much in common?

Please, please let the GOP actually try this.
