HEADLINES in the last 7 days: Miami Herald: Last chance for Colombia trade pact New York Times: Pass the Colombian Trade Pact Washingtion Post: Pass the Pact LA Times: Seal the deal on Colombian trade pact Unions' ownership of the Democratic Party is shameful almost beyond comprehension. Leftists are all too happy to delude themselves with moral equivalents, by using uninformed phrases like corporate welfare tax cuts for the rich and other deceit that ignores IRS and other data showing that final net taxes for corporations were close to $400 billion 2005, and slightly less in 2006. The top 2 quintiles pay a huge percentage of all taxes, the bottom 2 receive most of that in services and welfare. However even the Poverty Industry may not own Democrats, as much as unions do. Four of the most liberal newspapers in America have repeatedly urged Dems to support the Columbia Free Trade Pact. The arguments in favor of the overall population are so overwhelming, opposition cannot be taken seriously. Democrats are giving a ridiculously high priority to several million workers over the needs of a workforce of over 150 million and 300 million consumers. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi know this just as every literate, informed voter does, but theyll just keep looking us in the eye, smiling and putting out their disgusting spin, day after day, year after year.
