Before Bush II, 90% of the nation’s wealth was held by 10% of Americans. After Bush II, 90% of the nation’s wealth is held by 1% of Americans.
We are in the midst of two wars, a financial meltdown and unemployment that hasn’t been this high since 1982 – under Ronald Reagan.
And, how do the Republicans want to get us out of this mess?
They want to drive down the same potholed road of tax cuts and deregulation. We’ve driven down this road before and it is why, in the word’s of our President, we’re in a ditch.
Thanks to the Tea Party’s misguided movement, the Republicans have decided to come to their senses and cut the deficit. They are claiming lower taxes will make the world go round and it is simply not true.
Their idea of lower taxes is to make the upper 1% pay less than the lower 50%.
Their idea of change is business as usual.
Their idea of health care is to hand you a band aid while you bleed to death.
There is no way I’m going to vote Republican come November. We can’t hand them back the keys to the kingdom. There is too much at stake to let the party of no back in control.
Vote Democrat in November 2010.
