Before I even get started, I would like to say that what the Republican Party is doing to the Americans in need should be considered criminal. Holding Americans in need financially hostage just to give the wealthiest one percent of Americans more tax cuts is appalling.
This is truly a shameful day in American Politics. How the Republicans with can in one breath talk about bringing down the deficit and in another breath talk about giving more unpaid for tax cuts to the wealthiest among us would be laughable if it weren’t so cruel.
And the Democrats led by this President are not any better. How the Democrats allowed the Republicans to frame this argument as Taxes being raised when it fact all that is happening is addition tax cuts for the wealthy will come to an end and go back to what they were when Bill Clinton was President is astounding.
The Democrats are pathetic they have the people on their side, they have the facts on their side, and they still cannot win this is the main reason why people did not bother to vote in the last election and why they may not come out in vote in 2012.
Maybe if Mr. Comprise, the President would come out and stand up for the American people things could have ended differently. Now there will probably be a deal that will extend all the Bush tax cuts for another three or four years taking this country farther into debt and when things continue to get worse this naive President will be blamed for it.
Instead of rewarding the Republicans for continually to refuse to help make the country, people should be outraged. Families are going to lose their homes, families are not going to be able to put food on the table, and some child will not have a Christmas. This is going to happen to real people due to no fault of their own are without work and unable to provide for their families.
At some point it has to stop being about the next election and start being about real everyday people. What the Republicans are doing is morally reprehensible and I do not care if you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent if this does not say that there is something wrong with the way Washington works I do not know what does.
