Democrats for the super-rich

This is the letter I sent my hometown newspaper, The Austin American-Statesman.
How ironic that Democrat gubernatorial candidate Chris Bell will take $5 million dollars from trial lawyer John O'Quinn. The party that always clamors that Republicans are "for the rich" is taking money from a super-wealthy man who owns 600 cars worth $100 million. Why doesn't he practice what Democrats preach and redistribute that wealth to the poor in Texas? George Soros, the Hollywood crowd and John O'Quinn all have one thing in common: They want the taxpayers to be the ones footing the bill for wasteful social welfare programs as long as they get to keep their mansions and porsches. This is the height of hypocrisy inherent in the Democrat party's philosophy.
