The plague on America
It's now even Halloween and we have zombies and plagues. And I was so hoping to save them for next month.
If you liked the Bush policies that got us into this mess then you'll just love the republican plan. In it are yet more tax cuts for the wealthy and business on top of making the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy permanent. Only problem with that drunken idea is that it was never paid for in the first place. So where would they come up with the funds to prevent yet more deficits? They refuse to cut military spending so that only leaves raiding social security and Medicare which isn't their's to begin with. They would undo the health care bill but do not say what their plan is to replace it. They want to privatize the VA. Imagine your son or daughter having to fight not one fight on the battle field but another to get the care he or she needs because for profits must, by their very nature, keep tabs on the bottom line and answer not to some government oversight agency but to shareholders. And we've seen how CEOs of the large medical companies have made out like bandits while their customers go with poor service or worse denied. They speak of death panels. Their ideas would give us death panels for all.
Funny how they say they support small business at a photo op then turn around and vote against a bill that supports small business on the very same day. They are against a bill that would close loopholes that make sending our jobs overseas and reward companies that keep them here.
