GOP Rep calls middle-class tax cuts “socialism”

Robert Pittenger, a multimillionaire businessman, barely won a “safe” GOP seat in North Carolina in 2012, and since then has been one of the most dogmatic, closed-minded, radically rightwing — and racist — members of Congress.

If you have a pre-existing condition, he says you should move to a state where you can get health insurance — literally. He blamed Charlottesville violence on protesters who “hate white people because whites are successful and they’re not” — literally.

And he thinks tax cuts for giant corporations already awash in cash are about “jobs,” but calls tax cuts for the middle class a “wealth transfer” and “socialism” — literally.
