Have you seen this chain email claiming Barack Obama has signed 1000+ executive orders? Share the truth: It's a Pants on Fire! : http://http://bit.ly/1khUODn
In a 2003 lawsuit Fox News admitted that they lie and distort the news.
Here is an excerpt from a press release from the office of Sen. Tom Colburn(R. Ok.) That's -conservative republican- Tom Colburn. Read this, and then tell me how the rich pay their fare share...
"This welfare for the well-off – costing billions of dollars a year – is being paid for with the taxes of the less fortunate, many who are working two jobs just to make ends meet, and IOUs to be paid off by future generations. We should never demonize those who are successful. Nor should we pamper them with unnecessary welfare to create an appearance everyone is benefiting from federal programs."
"These billions of dollars for millionaires include $74 million of unemployment checks, $316 million in farm subsidies, $89 million for preservation of ranches and estates, $9 billion of retirement checks, $75.6 million in residential energy tax credits, and $7.5 million to compensate for damages caused by emergencies to property that should have been insured. All and all, over $9.5 billion in government benefits have been paid to millionaires since 2003. Additionally, millionaires borrowed $16 million in government backed education loans to attend college. On average, each year, this report found that millionaires enjoy benefits from tax giveaways and federal grant programs totaling $30 billion."
