I always thought Obama was on the side of the middle class and the poor. How wrong I was. After giving a few scraps to the unemployed on that last big bill ( not to forget the giant tax cut for the wealthy) he presents a budget that basically puts all the burden on the poor and disabled. I know this for a fact. There are cuts to food stamps, cuts for heating to low income families and cuts to housing the poor. And you thought the republicans were bad? Barack has taken the republican agenda to a new level. Trying to out republican them are we? They meaning the republicans seem to think this is some type of game. By stealing from the poor to give to the rich will somehow make this country great. No what you'll have is what we just saw in Egypt only you must remember our Army personnel don't work a second job as they do there. It wouldn't surprise me if they started closing VA hospitals. How quickly they forgot the reason they passed an emergency bill to improve conditions at that VA hospital.
And you just watch as the stiff regulations on deepwater oil drilling are soon forgotten. No need for oversight when it would cost money to enforce.
Keep your eyes peeled on the federal funding for police and fire. Always a necessary thing until you actually have to pay for them. So keep slashing away at what you think are unnecessary budget items until you've ripped the very heart of this country and turned it into your very own little ATM. When food prices are high enough that only the well to do can afford it just remember what happened to Mr Mubarak and a few others like him. People will endure only so much before they demand change. The change that's now being offered is only help to the very wealthy. Trickle down I guess means the blood that's running down my chest from the knife you just stuck in it.
This is my love letter to those up there on Capital Hill who've lost sight of what it means to actually work for a living. To them I send a dead flower bouquet as a reminder of what they're doing to this country. Happy Valentine's Day? Forget it, you already ripped our hearts out and I don't mean that in a sentimental way.
