    WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT?



    This is the rhetoric the GOP is spewing across the nation. The American people want them to destroy them? Because that is what their plan will do. I don’t think the American understand what they mean when they say they will cut government spending and not raise taxes and balance the budget and pay down the deficit.



    This is the GOP plan:
    In exchange for no new taxes and less government spending they will take your jobs, lower your wages, cut your unemployment benefits, raise your healthcare premiums, make you work longer to receive your social security, raise your Medicare premiums, cut welfare, food stamps and Medicaid for the poor, raise sale taxes, funding for public education will be cut, raise tuitions, your children will take longer to complete college and then there will be no jobs for them when the graduate.


    On top of all the they did not tell you it still will not balance the budget and leave a deficit for your children.

    Ask them “where will the $60 billion cuts in spending be” and how will it affect you and your children? I just told you. What they are saying is they want you to live below the poverty line until they balance the budget and pay down the deficit while making the Fat Cats richer with more tax cuts. Until hell freeze over. Even a $60 billion in spending cuts will not touch the deficit but it will touch every one of you. Even the T-Baggers who want less government spending.



    How is $60 billion cut in spending going to affect a growing $1.5 trillion deficit with out raising taxes?



    Be careful what you vote for. It may come back to bite you.

    The republicans have always been good at selling stuff people do not want.
    Things that most repoublicans do not even want if it impacts them.

    How can government lower your wages and take your jobs? Ah, we are on to something. Of course government has no power to reduce your wages or terminate your job unless....you work for the government. It seems that more people work for the government then support the government. In other words there are more people working at government jobs than in manufacturing or mining or farming or any other occupation put together. Does this concept seem healthy to the left? Federal and state government has become a bloated redundant mess that produces nothing. The Country is doomed if everyone works for the government. Doesn't that make sense to the left?

    I saw a quote earlier that referenced John Steinbeck - Most Americans think they are displaced millionaires.

    How true.

    There are more gov't jobs than private sector jobs? That is the point. With cuts in government spending services will be cut resulting in jobs cut. They will apply for unemployment and food stamps and free medical provided by the government resulting in more spending. where is the saving from cutting government spending?
    Government has more servicee due to more people seeking government services. thus more employees that pay taxes and taxes is revenue that help pay for those services.
    If government employee are mone than private then they must pay more taxes? but if their jobs are cut from cuts in spending they will not be paying taxes to the government but will be collecting from the goverenment and not producing anything.
    It is right wing rhetoric more people works for the goverenment, and if they did they are paid more, can spend more, pay more in taxes and contribute more to the economy.
    Do that make sense to the rignt?
    Even if government took over every business in the country we would be better off because they would be paid higher wages, pay more taxes and have more purchasing power and the economy will swell as never before and we would have a surplus as never before.:clap2:
