10. the Irresponsibility is Staggering...
70 billion in tax cuts to the already rich. 50 billion in aid cuts to the poor, the elderly, the old, the disabled, students, etc. Remember these figures.
All China has to do is utter two words, "Pay Up", and we are absolutely in the biggest Depression the world has ever witnessed.
Our so-called "leaders" are not only irresponsible, they are insane. While bush and friends talk up our "great economy", good jobs and benefits continue to be cut and/or outsourced, replaced by crap jobs that have little or no benefits and pay around 8 bucks an hour - and you are lucky to get a 40 hour week. Real buying power continues to drop, 22% over the past five years. Record deficits - no other administration in history has even come close. 7 billion a week for a war that cannot be won ( Dean is right ). Mega-Billions just gone "missing" from Rummy's mismanaged fiasco in the middle east.
And I could go on for pages. We must remember these figures, and we must hammer these facts home to all who would vote republican in 2006 and 2008. They have to see that their true interests are NOT being responsibly represented/managed by the republican party. Not even close.
