The Republicans promised a tax cut. They gave American's a 10% across the board tax cut. If I make $30,000.00 I will save $300.00 on my taxes. If I have made Five Million Dollars as CEO of a medium sized business, I have saved $500,000.00! That is a school budget for an average sized school district. The Republicans have the nerve to claim that this "extra" money that they have added to this persons pocketbook, is going to be put back into the company or spent on merchandise made by Americans, or somehow, someway, benefit all Americans. Sure it will. I can tell you where it will go. It will probably end up in an offshore account, or in the portfolio of investments that this person has, so that more money can be made. It will not help the middle class in America in any way, shape or form. This is a giant giveaway program. They buy the middle class off with four, five or six hundred dollars, and the mega-rich get millions. Let me tell you this, they are all laughing at the middle class while they do it.
We will NEVER have National Healthcare as long as we have the Republicans in power. Shall I give you the figures of how much the Medical PAC's and the Insurance companies, and the Trial Lawyers associations as well as the Dentists and the Unions have donated to make sure it never happens? Go to opensecrets.org and take a look. Don't trust me to tell you. My brother pays $500.00 a month along with the amount that his employer kicks in for health care. Do you believe his taxes would go up $500.00 a month on $35,000.00 a year if we had single-payer National Healthcare. I don't think it would. I would bet on it. All the politicians have health insurance provided by the government, yet the Republicans have actually said to people "Do you want the government to decide your healthcare?" The politicians sure don't seem to mind. I have TRICARE from the military, and they do a good job for me, and I pay nothing. How the Republicans have managed to stop America from insuring the health of Americans is something I'll never figure out. I know how they do it, with scare tactics and terrible scenarios of inflation and terrible taxation. I just don't understand why Americans fall for it.
The abuse of Americans that this "war on terror" allows. These wiretaps without warrants, and all the rest of it. With a Democratic Congress and a Democratic Senate, it will be possible to impeach George W. Bush. This is probably the most important thing a Democratic Congress could do. I am sure that Cheney would find himself in impeachment hearings also. The next president would be The Speaker of The House, and that would be a Democrat. It could be Nancy Pelosi, or it could be someone else. Either way, it would be a better administration than the one we currently have. Iraq is in a civil war, the Taliban are making a resurgence in Afghanistan, North Korea has the bomb, The Iranians will have one soon. The people in Latin America hate us and are electing socialist governments that detest us. The only ally we have is Great Britain, and there I am not so sure that Tony Blair is not the only one that supports us.
