Republicans equal “we hate taxes”

Definitely the theme on the 3rd day of the RNC is pro-business, anti tax, and anti regulation.  Openning with former CEOs of eBay and Hewlett Packard, both who happen to be women, to lead this theme.  Clearly they are going pushing the idea that taxes hurt corporations, that lower individual taxes mean more money in your pocket.

Of course, from my point of view, which is 180 from these people, that this overlooks what taxation can do if wielded wisely to help people, like Social Security or Medicare.  Not to corporations that extort local governments for corporate welfare, which is where I think Republicans in general prefer our tax dollars to go.
