They don’t care what anybody says except for themselves and the corporate masters like the Koch Brothers that give them billions and billions of dollars through these shell corporations and these PACs and all this other business.
You know, the Republicans really don’t care. They have one master, and that’s money.”
“The Republicans aren’t terribly interested in the country. They’re interested in power so that their corporate patrons, and sponsors like the Koch brothers, can get more and more for themselves, and make sure middle class America has less and less. The Republicans are just in the business of destroying the American dream.”

“I think the debate for the new generation, instead of capitalism or socialism, is we’re going to have both, and then which proportion of each should we have in order to make this all work.”
