Prosperity or Poverty? Helen Thomas on "heartless lawmakers" and those who elect them
Article here:
http://www.fcnp.com/commentary/national/9035-path-to-pr...

My old home town of Falls Church, Virginia is now home to a curious mix of liberal, well-educated
academics and government people and old-time embittered, unreconstructed Confederates, who see
every tax dollar as being stolen out of their pockets by "libbruls" and being used to support
imaginary inner city welfare queens. Just read the few letters of comment.

I invite any DUers so inclined to add their comments.

1. k&r with thanks for sharing.
"To meet the deficit, President Obama should cut military spending, and let the current generous tax breaks for the extremely wealthy expire.
If Democrats lack talking points in the 2012 presidential race, it is because they have lost their sense of justice. How can they miss in showing the American people that Democrats do care about having a more just society? Republicans have certainly shown they couldn't care less.
Meanwhile, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi is reportedly sounding the alarm on the projected cuts in Medicare and Medicaid. It's up to the Democrats to support the President in an all out fight to help the deprived people in this country. What have they got to lose?
Let's hope wiser heads will prevail. It is war, and the Democrats have the only weapons that will defend real Americans - the Americans we can be proud of."

2. Hoping wiser heads will prevail
That has been rather a vain hope of late, unfortunately.

5. Feel free to add a comment of your own to the FCNP site!
If enough of us do, we can overwhelm the right-wing hate gang there.
