What have the Republicans done for you lately!

What have Republicans done for America? Republicans point to the Civil Rights Act, but what have they done since 1964 for the middle class, the sick and the needy? They’re prompting tax cuts for the wealthiest, urging a repeal of health care reform and have obstructed anything this administration has tried to pass.

Republicans won control of the House using the economy to incite fear and, Historically Democrats have been far more fiscally responsible than Republicans.”



When did the Debt pass the $8 trillion mark?

On October 18th 2005, the Outstanding Public Debt rose to $8,003,897,406,911.24 — the first time it had risen above $8 trillion.

When did the Debt pass the $7 trillion mark?


On January 15th 2004, the Outstanding Public Debt jumped $13 billion to $7,001,852,607,623.35. This was the first time in history the U.S. National Debt surpassed the $7 trillion mark and came less than two years after the Debt first passed $6 trillion.

As a comparison, the National Debt took over six years to rise from $5 trillion to $6 trillion.

Tax cuts for the wealthiest is hardly batting for the middle or lower class. Asking the rest of America to wait for a trickle down effect which never trickles down is a blatant disrespect for the average U.S. citizen.

Splice Today:

Call it class warfare because that’s exactly what the tax code is—all 13,458 pages, in 20 volumes, available from the U.S. Government printing office for $974. It’s written by and for those who would benefit from extending the entire Bush tax cut. What’s even more dangerous about perpetuating the high income cut is that it further contributes to the imbalance of wealth by concentrating it in the hands of the few to the deprivation of the many. To wit: With 17 million people out of work, Republicans once again have blocked the extension of unemployment benefits for two million Americans, one of the surest ways of getting money into the hands of those who’ll spend it. This occurred a week before Thanksgiving and five weeks before Christmas. The GOP apparently views continued economic distress as their passport back into the White House.

My emphasis

This is class warfare and the lines are being defined even more so that Republicans have won the House. These tax cuts were supposed to be temporary but they want them permanently extended. Health care reform, immigration reform and equality for all will become nonexistent issues.

This blog title says it loud and clear.

That is the problem with society in this day and age.

Almost everybody is concerned first and foremost with WHAT HAS GOVERNMENT DONE FOR ME LATELY.

Well, you got Abe Lincoln, there's always that.

Remember what LBJ said on that airplane?

Turns out he was right.

Indeed:

"Somebody needs to save the country before the policies of the Democratic party wrecks it entirely."

A great big AMEN.
