This is Republican mythology and the propaganda of losers against democracy itself. That may be understandable given the past success of their politics in the Confederate culture area. There for generations they raised racially based distracted mobs while the real players cleaned the table. As they go national they try religion and age groups. But they realize they have no future from the demographics.
Most of the Republican posters here are ROWGs - Raging Old White Guys with lots of time. So now their only plan for US finances and the economy is to cut US life expectancy by years. Even that won't work for long given their other policies, but they figure that the older people will vote the Republican name whatever they do. Are they right?
There is a much greater danger that money will buy Congress, not that Congress will buy the people with their own money. That's how Washington works in general, especially the Republicans. Their last Presidential campaign was mostly financed by rich wanna-be plutocrats. The vehicles for that were a few funds like Karl Rove's American Crossroads or his anonymous Crossroads GPS, or the US Chamber of Commerce funds under Donahue.
This was the message from an upper level mgr when I was working for gov't, "Always vote your pocket book".
What he said if you don't understand it is, "Vote for that politician that will increase your benefits". The same thing goes for those people on welfare.
