Rand Paul on our new Corporate Lords: "We all either work for rich people or we sell stuff to rich people."

The election has come and gone. Republicans are now on the hook to show the American voters what they plan change. But change is not coming to the "burdened" wealthy and corporate elite, it's coming in the form of "shared" sacrifice" by the spoiled working class.

Since we've given them personhood, corporations now have free speech rights. We've offered up plans to lower their taxes to almost nothing, and put them first in the pecking order to spur on an economic recovery. They're special because they're rich and provide jobs. But the new business model includes fewer employees, lower wages and major cuts in benefits. It's an economic class of royalty protected by small government conservative Republicans. Like Rand Paul:
PAUL: There are no rich. There are no middle class. There are no poor. We all are interconnected in the economy ... We all either work for rich people or we sell stuff to rich people. So just punishing rich people is as bad for the economy as punishing anyone. Let’s not punish anyone. Let’s keep taxes low and let’s cut spending
