5 Things A Republican Running For President Can't Say
1 year ago
They can't directly support Black people or Low-Income families.
Here is a list of 5 things a Republican can't say who is running for office. Obviously, a lot of these are true and some have a funny twist to them. But judging the controversial comments the GOP presidential contenders are known for, here are a few you'd think a president would gladly say — but not a Republican one.
1. “I want black people to succeed.”
Then again, this is for any politician. We don’t live in a time where a presidential candidate can blatantly advocate for blacks. Obama couldn’t do it; he could do it on the sneak-tip though. A Republican surely isn’t.
2. “I support Obamacare.”
Obamacare must be the anti-christ because Republicans have been trying to destroy it since it first came to the House. Mitt Romney was (and still is) under scrutiny over something he said in April 2010. He said, “I hope we’re also able to eliminate some of the differences. Repeal the bad and keep the good.” It sounds like Romney supports some of what Obama has done and that is unacceptable.
3. “I will tax the rich.”
Tax the rich???
If a right-winger running for president wants to tax the rich, he/she can kiss his political career GOODBYE. Considering the low-income families is something that Democrats do. There are 46.2 million Americans living in poverty and Romney wants to raise taxes on them. His tax plan would have households that make less than $20,000 receiving a 60% increase in their taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center. And everyone already knows Rick Perry’s flat-tax plan is meant to benefit wealthy Americans.
4. “I support gay rights.”
There is absolutely no way a Republican would say this, not with their naturally religious background. I find it rather peculiar. It's not okay for the government to recognize same-sex couples and allow them to get married but it is okay for the government to interfere with the decision a woman makes with her body (i.e. the pro-life v. pro-choice debate)?
5. “I only support government intervention when it benefits the wealthy.”
They may not say this, but this is exactly how they act. You see it across the board: Perry’s flat tax plan, Romney’s tax cuts for the rich, and Santorum cutting Social Security. You would think that the majority of people would read through their politically correct responses in debates. But when you look at the numbers, it's clear who they’re advocating for.
