What does “winning” a debate really mean? Take a look at how each party’s policies affect you. Look at the actions of the last four years.

What did the Republicans fight for? To keep the tax cut of billions for the top 1 percent, corporations and oil companies.

What did the Democrats fight for? Health care, extended unemployment benefits, tax cuts to the middle class, mortgage relief, Wall Street reforms.

It’s our money. We have the power with our vote. We support the direction of our country by how we spend our money.

Do you really want to keep giving a gift of billions of your money to the wealthiest of this country, corporations and oil companies at the expense of taking away Medicaid, Social Security, unemployment benefits and health care? These are not entitlements; we have all paid unemployment and Social Security taxes for years.
