What this country needs isn't more tax cuts or more corporate subsidies. It needs jobs. We know there is a "skills" gap. This has been referenced many times in several threads. We know Republicans are slashing education in state after state. We know Republicans, even before he was sworn in, have said they want this president to fail. We had a bridge fall down into a river during rush hour and we know that unless we fix our bridges, it won't be the last. We know our electrical grid is old and failing. We know our roads have potholes. We know corporations are sitting on piles of cash. We know millions of Americans are out of work. We know Democrats have presented a vision of how to get out of this mess. We know Republicans have said government can't do anything. Republicans have said they will block anything this president tries to do. Even if they keep Obama from being re-elected, they still say government can't do anything. How will Republicans get Americans to vote for them? So far, we've heard Obama doesn't love this country and corporations are people. If you follow the Republicans plan of ending Medicare, ending Social Security, defunding the Federal Government, removing regulations, taxs for the wealthy, subsidies for companies, slash education and so on. What's left? What are they going to run one? Clearly everyone sees that just cutting the deficit does nothing without revenue coming in from either a tax increase or taxes from new jobs being created. The only strategy can't possibly be, "I hope he fails". Because the next question is, "Then what?" Too bad USMB Republicans can't just answer the question instead of crying, "We don't want to end Medicare". Even telling them, "A voucher program is not Medicare". Or we don't want to end Social Security. Look at what is happening in the stock market. Thank God only some of my 401 is there. And to deny those other things? Why bother? It's what the fight is all about. You might as well deny the Moon.
