"I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'."

Dan Winslow - To offset that loss of revenue, Winslow says he would cut special interest corporate tax loopholes. Such loopholes include $7 billion annually in subsidies to oil and gas companies, $300 million in corporate jet tax write-offs and billions in what he says started as farming tax breaks.
Sounds like a page from the script of a stump speech given by now-Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat.
Winslow's response to that sentiment? "I'm going beyond what Elizabeth Warren has said in terms of tax loopholes. Unless there is some measurable benefit for all Americans, I'm against it. Because that means it is just a special interest fat cat loophole." http://www.necn.com/03/20/13/Dan-Winslows-tax-plan-blurs-party-lines/landing_politics.html?blockID=835367&feedID=11106
