Restoring American Democracy

Post by mistermunster on Sun Apr 10, 2011 5:40 pm

The president says yesterday's accord "is an agreement to invest in our country's future," but that "needed infrastructure projects will be delayed." He says that in tough times, families sacrifice to "afford what's really important," but that "programs people rely on will be cut back." There is, of course, not a shred of sacrifice by Wall Street, Big Oil, the nation's millionaires and billionaires, the health insurance industry, or any of the other lobbies that the president and much of Congress count on to fund their re-election campaigns.

In poll after poll, the actual views of the public about the budget are clear: cut military spending, raise taxes on the rich, and cut health care costs by taking on private health insurers. These are the policies put forward last week in the "People's Budget" (which I recently wrote about) proposed by the leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

It should be blatantly obvious to everyone involved, and it is, that the budget cannot be balanced without cutting free money given to billion dollar corporations who don't need it. This is the only way that the issue can be fixed. We could even afford the wars if Bank of America wasn't given billions in free money.

Yes, and they all come out in PUBLIC an TELL us HOW MUCH profits they made that quarter, yet the nation is still in the crapper. Love how they like rubbing it in our faces.

What I don't understand is why the American working class doesn't see that?

I think maybe they do but are so convinced that conservatives are right that they think it must be the commie liberal's fault.

from my personal experience of "said" PEOPLE. That's my guess. And it's what I've said all along that they are brainwashed and have been for 30 years. And if your lucky like me, you can BREAK away from it and think for yourself. Alas MANY are too weak willed to do so. They won't realize the truth until they are at the edge about to be pushed off into the abyss. Then it's too late. And as LONG as the right keeps bringing UP bogeymen (insert FEAR of choice here) at EVERY turn to keep people afraid. Nothing will change.
