Republicans don't help the little guy

Thanks to caller Robert, Thom Hartmann renewed his challenge for people to provide one piece of legislation offered by Republicans to help real people -- not corporations, not rich people. Thom said that he had earlier posed a similar question to then Congressman Tom Tancredo. "Can you please name for me one piece of legislation that the Republicans have sponsored that has become law whose primary beneficiary was the average person in America as opposed to a corporation or the rich?" He couldn't.

Thom said he had a contest for the better part of two years and to the best of his knowledge no one ever came up with an answer. Something that primarily benefits the middle class, the working poor, or people out of work altogether? Can you? Think about it.
