Budget Deal Reached but Boehner, Cantor and McConnell Engage in Legislative Gimmickry to Forestall Revenue Increases on the Rich



Although most Americans(including most Republicans) have indicated in polls that they want taxes raised on the TOP 1%–the rich in America— Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate and Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the House continue their campaign to insulate highly profitable corporations and the wealthy from the economic hardships being experienced by 99% of Americans who do the real sweating of labor and dying in war to keep the United States at the front of global politics and economy. The 99% give so much more than their fair share of the national effort. They earn their money the old fashioned way: They sweat and toil. No derivatives! The Republican leaders with cold unfeeling eyes still refuse to tell us why they refuse to require the TOP 1% to carry their fair share of the load. It can’t be solely about large campaign contributions because Democrats receive them, too. There must be some secret Republican plan so vile and monstrous that it would rock the nation if revealed.  Yesterday, a reporter confronted Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) with the one question that we all ask: “Why do you protect the TOP 1%?” Without a pause Boehner mumbled a quip, turned and walked away from the camera refusing to be accountable to the people who “hired” him. Are Republican leaders above the people? They are the faces of untold special interests who have led this country to ruin for 30 years. Disgraced ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich taught them how to govern this way years ago. Now, Newt seeks title and ultimate power. He wants the power of the world’s only super power and the title of President of the United States.  WE MUST DENY HIM AND HIS REPUBLICAN CRONIES WHO TURN A DEAF EAR TO THE VOTERS WHO PUT THEM IN OFFICE AND NOW SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. Surely, the framers of the Constitution gave us the means to remove them from office. Surely there is some Abramnoff-esque obscure law, rule or procedure that we can use to reclaim the Congress and restore its honor. It will take a bi-partisan effort of great thinkers, movers and shakers to plot their destruction.  And, the time for them to begin that work is NOW!  McConnell, Boehner and Cantor think that they are unstoppable. But, God is always on the side of goodness and has promised to help us. It may have been awhile, but, let us all renew our faith in the true God and pledge our lives and our country to doing His will. Pray for His guidance in restoring the middle-class and the character upon which America was founded.  We were created to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The greedy and corrupt among us have brought nothing but misery to us, the 99%, and ever-increasing profits for themselves, the 1%. Let us be comforted by these words from the Bible: “Money is the root of all evil.” Jesus Christ will destroy all evil and bless us. In His name we ask for divine assistance in getting our country back! Those who do evil in the dark to accumulate money and call on God’s name in the light, will hear Him say, “Depart from Me. I never knew you!”
