Town halls, polls reveal Americans’ deep reticence over moves to tackle deficit

Post by Guest on Tue May 10, 2011 1:06 pm

Raucous town halls during the Easter recess and conflicting polls made one thing abundantly clear: Despite a general desire to get the deficit under control, Americans are not interested in most of the specific proposals Congress or the White House say would be needed to accomplish the task, particularly trimming Medicare. Only two steps tend to attract broad support: eliminating subsidies to oil companies and raising taxes on the wealthy. Yet those are opposed by most Republicans.

You need to look at it like this: ... most GOPs think welfare is theft and robbery because they believe their labor is their property under common law. They don't realize the low wages they pay and corporate politics on job exports / imports put people on the streets overnight. They are greedy and don't care about working people just what they can get for themselves.

That said we should end all social security because the entire system is not sustainable unless taxes are raised. If employer costs are increased they will "have no choice" but to find markets with no such taxes -- meaning your jobs go overseas.

At the core level it's really a banking issue and globalization that are the problem.
