Yahoo: Proles Were Brainwashed into Believing Tax Cut for Rich Would Help Them

Now They Are Being Brainwashed Again that President Obama is a "Tax and Spend" Democrat

-By Brian Conners

June 21, 2011- The typical GOP politician is terrified of the Tea party, so they are willing to spew a party line of hypocrisy. Tea Partiers are being duped not only by the GOP politicians, but also by Dick Armey, Sarah Palin, Grover Norquist and others of their ilk and there is a concerted effort by the GOP to control what its base thinks via Clear Radio Channel and FOX TV. It is hard to understand the contemporary GOP political philosophy. The GOP as well as the Tea Party want to drastically reduce the size of government. They want to do so to such an extent though that the very thing they want to control will all but disappear. What then will they have to control?

RAW Story: Sen. Sanders: Koch bros. ‘want to destroy Social Security’

-By Stephen C. Webster

June 23, 2011- Seeing what he called “an enormous amount of disinformation about Social Security” in the media, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joined with activist filmmaker Robert Greenwald to produce a video that attempts to explains why.

Sanders claims that campaign contributions and hundreds of millions in think tank funding from billionaire industrialist brothers David and Charles Koch help create an “echo chamber” for “misinformation” on the hugely popular federal safety net, like suggesting it is about to go broke or claiming the retirement age must be raised in order to prevent economic collapse.

“Social Security is not going broke,” Sanders insisted. “Social Security has a $2.2 trillion surplus… The Koch brothers want to invest your retirement funds on Wall Street, and you may lose all of your retirement savings when you get old.”
