Shared sacrifices

Why does it seem that the Republican's idea of a "shared sacrifice" is for the middle class to give up more and more in benefits, services, etc. while the wealthy folks and the corporations sacrifice by getting huge tax cuts? Why does Scott Walker believe that the "shared sacrifice" in Wisconsin is for the public sector unions to give up their collective bargaining rights in addition to the concessions they've already made in order to solve a budget "crisis" that he helped to create with his tax cuts for the wealthy and the corporations?

Oh's because they're all bought and paid for by corporate America. As for the bottom 98%, good freakin' know, get to work and all that. Pull yourselves up by your own bootstraps. I guess you better pull yourself up, because you sure as hell aren't going to get a job if you don't already have one, and if you're a union member don't count on keeping that job too long unless you're willing to give up everything your union has gained over the past 80 or so years...
