The republicans devised yet another PLAN,

To SOAK, the rest of us, with

yet another tax, fee, charge, on something we must have, and cannot live without.

SNIDE’r learned his lessons well,

from the cable companies,

groundbreaking “bundling” scheme.

Charge, charge, charge,

then, repeatedly

takeaway, takeaway, takeaway, until there is nothing left...

from the lowest tier, until there nothing worth watching in their basic service ‘scheme’.

and charge for ‘MORE’

as we are forced to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade,

their ad's continually cajole...

Well,

well,

WELL,

Another day,

another scheme...

Along comes republican snide’r, with another plan that effectively and conclusively,

‘seems’ to be ‘beneficial’ for the poor ?

But, if you are given the ability to see who it really benefits,

it’s his rich brothers, and his rich cousins in the business fraternity brother-hood of

profit-making for their world of acquisitions and mergers,

(aka -ways to take more money from the rest of us),

his fraternity of republican business pals.

Now,

these businesses, won’t have NEGATIVE ASPERSIONS, cast their way, when they TURN OFF THE POOR’S UTILITES.

Livited,

“Knock it off with blaming the political party, would you?

They are all in bed with one another! “

Fyi:

the republicans are to blame more than the other party, because they have more of our money that they have eased out of our wages, pensions, sick leave, medical care, eased themselves out of paying taxes…

they have experimented, defined, redefined untold ways and means to sprit themselves into the sunset, with more goods than you could ever imagine,

while you stand looking at the sunset

with nothing on but the sweat of your brow,

and nothing to wipe it with…

republicans are a class unto themselves…

A real class Act

Not classy mind you, but an act of boundless, classless greed.
