Republican Solution To Poverty & Unemployment REVEALED!

Turns out it’s been staring us right in the face all this time.  I could just kick myself for missing something so obvious:

Yesterday, [Republican West Virginia senatorial candidate John] Raese appeared on the Matt Lewis show, a conservative talk radio program. When Lewis asked Raese about his background and his life experience, Raese offered this straight-faced response:

LEWIS: Tell us a little bit about you and your business experience and how you got here.

RAESE: I made my money the old-fashioned way, I inherited it. I think that’s a great thing to do. I hope more people in this country have that opportunity as soon as we abolish inheritance tax in this country, which is a key part of my program.

See?  All the people who are poor and out of work were just too lazy and unambitious to have rich parents!  Stupid poor people and their lack of gumption.

(On a side note, after all this time thinking that “trickle-down economics” meant that wealth flows down from the rich to everyone else, now it turns out that it’s really about wealth flowing down from the rich to their heirs.)

    Amen! Just how many in WV actually benefit from the Inheritance tax. I heard Raese make this statement at a Tea Party Forum and I said to myself I wish I had taped that and now I do not need to worry, he was serious, not being funny, he really means what he says! Be afraid WV, be VERY afraid. As for Manchin…be afraid, be very afraid…he is not really for WV either, we have been a stepping stone to Washington for him, he’s a power hungry man, we all know that here. He is not THAT popular in WV, don’t listen to the media they just spread his agenda for him. I vote Mtn. Party. Jesse Johnson is for the people and will represent the people with no corporate backed financing, PAC monies, special interest groups breathing down his neck to sway him…put the real representation of the people of WV in Washington!

    I saw the other day the cut off amount where the inheritance tax stoped. Raese is in that tax amount, most of us are not. So, he inherited his money. I’m not impressed, some of us have come from old lost money, some from none. The bottom line is that Big Business (some people working 60+hrs/week just to keep a job) and for most family’s, two people are working, and it is one heck of a squeeze to make payments. The dollar is shrinking (inflation coming?) taxes from Big Government are not getting cut… Most people feel the vice tighten. And either way you vote you have men who are the product of “money to spend to get elected”.
    Is this what we want? Is there someone who can cut through this and represent us? Go to and look at 10th generation (not rich) WV who WILL represent the people of WV…. he is as tired of what we are facing as we are! Vote for Jesse….. give a good man a chance.
