Senator Richard Burr is a pathetic LOSER


Senator Richard Burr has been in Congress for over 15 years. We've had 15 years of his trickle down economics. We've had 15 years of his laissez-faire attitude toward sensible regulation. We've had 15 years of his tax cuts largely aimed at the super wealthy.  We've had 15 years of his war mongering.  We've had 15 years of this lawnmower salesman representing us in Washington DC,  and this is where we are:
  • Our nation is $14.5 Trillion in debt.
  • Only 58% of Americans are currently employed.
  • 20% of men between the ages of 25 and 54 do not have a job.
  • The median annual wage is only $26.2 K.
  • We are $7.7 Trillion poorer than we were in 2007.
  • The 400 richest Americans pay only 17% federal income tax,  while middle class Americans pay appreciably more.
  • The top 1% of Americans own 43% of our country's wealth.
  • The bottom 50% of Americans own 2.5% of our nation's wealth.
  • 21% of our children currently live below the poverty line.
  • 44 million Americans are on food stamps.
Nice job Richie.  What are you going to do now?  Maybe head off to Disneyland to celebrate your many successes in destroying America?

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
