Dimocrats buy votes with taxpayer money. That's what it is ... period!
Aha, you say, but Republicans are doing the same thing with tax breaks. Noooooo, NOT taking a citizens money - money that citizen EARNED through work or investment - is NOT the same as gifting a citizen money a different citizen earned through work or investment.
Consider it this way: you're mugged on the street, but the mugger only stole half your money; versus the mugger giving the stolen loot to his girlfriend.
In which scenario was a person bought - the mugged victim, or the girlfriend?
