Did you know that the Walton family that owns Walmart (6 people) have a greater worth than the bottom 40% of all Americans (That is 125 Million people) yet it costs taxpayers :

$943 — average annual cost to taxpayers of providing Medicaid, food stamps, and cash assistance for each Walmart employee, based on data from Ohio21.

Walmart insists that manufacturing be done in cheaper countries like China (costing good paying American jobs) and they pay their employees like shit which is why they qualify for government assistance so they are obscenely wealthy and their employees are at the poverty level and the American taxpayer foots the bill.

If lower taxes on the rich (the job creators---In China) really help employment why was the George W. Bush years (without the financial collapse) the worst job creating period in modern times? Its a failed economic policy and Romney/Ryan are doubling down on it. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?
