Campaign 2012: Billionaires to the rescue

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Are you a billionaire with a few million bucks to spare?

    Sure they got those tax cuts that were supposed to create jobs and what do they use that money for? To turn this country into a fascist dictatorship,where the gap between rich and poor gets bigger and bigger.Top much money in the hands of a few sent this country down the tubes since Bush and his tax cuts.We wouldn 't have a deficit and entitlements would not have to be cut if the rich paid their fair share s it was before.

  3. Food stamps for billionaires.

    If we don't give more tax breaks to billionaires, they won't be able to buy congress, the supreme court, and the presidency. Being rich is not easy.

    One thing about he ultra-rich; they know a good investment when they see one. Right now, with the economy down and people starting to mutter about "fairness" and "tax the rich", the best investment in town is in conservative politicians. Yes, I know Obama has his own super-PAC, but it's a lightweight compared to Rove's, Mitt's, or even Newt's. These folks are investing heavily in keeping their tax rates down, and you better believe that will be the single highest priority of the GOP in coming years.

    We have GOT to get this madness under control before the rich guys completely take over. The super-PAC is the greatest threat to American's freedom since the rise of Communism.
