    How can corporations be their customers. Then why will the repugs take money away from mainstreet by cutting government programs and our demand money and give it to corporations. Now corporations can't creat jobs because mainstreet don't got no demand money. China is licking their chops because they've got plenty of demand money and since these stupid republicans have deregulate big corporations they are free to do business with any one. Now how the he'll is mainstreet suppose to compete with chinas 3 billion people with their booming economy. These stupid american voters have doomed us.
