While the tax cuts for the rich are extended and subsidies to oil continue…is there no end to this shame?
It is the old game of taking from the poor to give to the rich...Republicans think there is nothing wrong with that...they will defend it to their graves. First Bush tried to gut Social Securityl now the current GOP-led House actually voted recently to gut Medicare. A long-overdue tax hike on the rich is off the table. Taxpayer subsidies for oil companies already awash in profits are sacrosanct. New abortion restrictions, killing Public Broadcasting and repealing the repeal of 'Don’t ask don’t tell' suddenly replace "Jobs Jobs Jobs" on their radar screen. The debt ceiling is a toy. Oh, and their Big Responsible GOP Spending Cut Bill increased spending by billions. Heckuva job!And all their cuts will not just cause the national debt to rise but it will also cause millions of Americans to lose their employment...and Speaker Boehner says: "so be it". I would like to know what part of "TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS DOESN'T WORK, NEVER WILL" the Republicans don't understand.
