Greed Has No Bounds!
Most Cancers Have No Cure!
I should have expected it but, I learned yesterday that when it comes to tax changes and reform Mitt Romney has signed a pledge virtually selling his soul to Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform which is NOT about reform at all. They seek to protect the things as they are guaranteeing “no tax increases” including those on the rich. Yesterday, former RNC Chairman, Michael Steele, MSNBC Political Analyst could not counter what we know about Grover Norquist. Host, Chris Matthews on “Hardball” made Steele work to defend the actions and motivations of the Republican Party. If you clicked the previous link and watched Norquist’s speech, you know how little would be required of Mitt Romney as president: Be a “robo-signing machine OKing the laws and policies dreamed up by Machiavellian man behind the curtain, Grover Norquist. Mitt, the unthinking tool, would only be required to have enough fingers on one hand to write his signature! Were you shocked by Norquist’s 20 year plan for GOP presidents? In Grover’s mind, HE runs the party and the nation. His ego eclipses the mammoth one of Newt Gingrich was admitted his defeat yesterday. [How could Newt not know voters want to like their nominees who are, well, nice people? He must have had an inkling, though. He started calling himself, “Mr. Cheerful.” There were no bounds to his incredulity! Newt, we know that the failures of current congressional politics are the result of seeds you sewed in your 30+ years of wielding GOP power in the Congress.]
Fact check the Koch Brothers on Obamacare
The George Mason University Mercatus Center released a report this week claiming Obamacare will actually add to the deficit, to the tune of $340 billion. But don’t for a minute believe that they don’t have an agenda — this center is primarily funded by the Koch brothers, and was founded by their chief lobbyist. A quick look at studies from actual non-partisan sources, like the Congressional Budget Office, back up what the President has said about Obamacare all along — it will actually cut the deficit by $127 billion.
Did you catch the news Tuesday? There were tornadoes in Texas, but a firestorm in Washington, D.C, when President Obama attacked the GOP budget which proposes to take $3.3 Trillion dollars in federal benefits and programs that benefit the poor and the middle class and they would transfer that revenue to the Top 1% of Americans who oppose and oppress us giving them a tax cut of $150,000. [MSNBC Policy Analyst, Ezra Klein estimates $265,000.] The President called this 2nd “Paul Ryan Budget” “radical” and an attempt at “thinly veiled social Darwinism.” Oh, I see now what has gone on right under our noses: The rich have devised a ‘master plan’ to concentrate our country’s wealth and bounty into the hands of the very rich by boldly taking
money from those who they must consider inferior to them and thereby grow their power and riches. Do they think that their Romney-like success makes them akin to a ‘master race’ deserving all of the fruits of commerce? For 30 years their incomes have outpaced ours by 300%! They have laid waste to the middle-class (that Barack Obama seeks to restore) and would soon turn on the then defenseless poor. Remember those death panels spoken of in hushed voices? Might they become a reality to dispatch the remnants of our dwindling class? And, what would become of the poor… left with no aspiration or hope for attaining the American Dream? Extermination camps?
