Thom Hartmann: Are Republicans redistributing massive amounts of money to the top 1%?

Between all the debates, the interviews, and the campaign ads - doesn't it seem like the Republicans candidates only care about helping rich people? That's because that IS all they care about. According to a report by the Citizens for Tax Justice - which examined all the tax cut plans proposed by the candidates - the average tax cut for the 1% is 270 times greater than the tax cuts being proposed for the middle class. Not only that - by redistributing massive amounts of money to the very top - Republicans will add enormous amounts of money to our national debt - ranging between $6.6 trillion and $18 trillion over the next decade. In other words - the Republicans are proposing an economic plan that will bankrupt this nation just so millionaires and billionaires can get even wealthier.
(Do you think they will get away with it? Tell us here.)
