And finally, one of them answered a question I've had for quite some time: "Do the people at the top of the income ladder really need the tax break Republicans are so bent on giving them by gutting other people's health care plans?"
The answer? This, from Gov. Hickenlooper on MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson today: "They (the wealthy) don't even want it" or words to that effect. While he didn't elaborate, I've long believed that a tax break like the one the GOP wants to give them by cutting health care costs wouldn't much affect the lifestyles of those rich and famous.
All of which begs the question: Why are the Republicans so eager to give a tax break to those who are just fine without it while scaling back on health-care help to those in need? As a party, are they truly heartless?
