Corporate Welfare & Millionaires' Entitlement Bailout
I don't want to hear any of this partisan drivel about how serious the Republicans are about deficit reduction until they spend the ten minutes it would take to repeal the millionaires' welfare income tax reduction from which no one would starve to death, no one would die for lack of health care, and no one would become homeless due to foreclosure. That $70 billion plus interest savings is greater than the reductions over which they are squabbling, risking a government shut down, and squelching the fragile economic recovery, thus raising the deficit more than the economy killing reductions they are trying to coerce upon this country. Blackmailing the country into continuing this reprehensible protection racket to support millionaires entitlements has been played to death, literally 45,000 deaths from lack of health insurance annually. Having been a Republican until the despicable behavior demonstrated by my former party the past two years, I can assure the congressman the hoodwinking they pulled off in the last election is so over because of their blatant hypocrisy over concern for this country or its citizens. Their indefensible actions have become obvious and their inability to shill for their corporate owners will not be as highly rewarded after the next election.
