Supreme Senator Mitch McConnell

Meet the Putz hosted Senator Mitch McConnell this morning. Mitch suggested giving individuals rights every corporation has. It's not to spend unlimited amounts on campaign ads, a right granted corporations this week by the Supreme Court. McConnell wants to allow citizens to deduct health insurance expenses.

Why would the average American need this "right"? Because employers continue shedding their health insurance benefit, when not outright eliminating jobs. The Senate's passed reform bill shows 35.3 million Americans losing employer coverage between 2008 & 2019.

Will Tea Partiers throw their employer sponsored health insurance overboard for the right to deduct it? I don't see that as a rallying cry. Paul Revere needs to ride for a different reason.

Corporacrats, red & blue, infect America's hallowed halls of government. They ride hard to reach the lowest global common denominator on worker pay/benefits, taxes and regulation. Mitch McConnell clearly showed his Red Corporacrat colors this morning. America suffers from abysmal leadership.
