Army says no to more tanks, but Congress insists

Apr 28, 2013 Full story: MilitaryCity.com 26

Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams, which the Army refers to with a moniker that befits their heft: the M1A2SEPv2.

Train Wreck Economy

Richard Blaine

This image dramatically but accurately portrays what republicans have done to our economy. Its was republicans who destroyed America's moral credibility with 2 wars, both of which nearly bankrupted the treasury holding tax payer money. It was republicans who insisted tax cuts be used as a One-Size Fits-All solution to all economic issues. But just like Japan our economy has floundered because tax cuts (4 over the past 12 years) have proven to be a failure.

It is republicans who built the debt in order to implement their insidious plan of "STARVE THE BEAST" where they consider social programs a beast and the only way to end them is through cutting their funding, and even though Americans have made it quite clear they DO NOT want social programs ended (and this even includes the village idiot taliban/teabaggers), the only way to impose "STARVE THE BEAST" is drive up debt so massive it becomes necessary to save the country from bankruptcy.

BTW it was republicans who tried gaming America in 2011 with their "debt ceiling crisis", the one they manufactured when they gave the country so much grief over raising the debt ceiling. The only purpose for the debt ceiling is NOT to increase debt (that's already done) but rather to pay back creditors. After months of needless wrangling America's bond ratings were reduced and bond rating agencies stated outright it was due to the debt ceiling crisis created by republicans.

So yes I'd say that train wreck below quite accurately portrays what republicans have done to our economy. They force America into Russian Roulette simply to make President Barack Obama look bad in the hope of pinning economic problems on him. They put the 2012 election ahead of the country.

How dare you people on this list vote for republicans. They are traitors to our country and anyone voting for them likewise is a traitor.

Yet in the case of the Abrams tank, there’s a bipartisan push to spend an extra $436 million on a weapon the experts explicitly say is not needed.
The republicans don't preach deficits, they preach not spending over what we take in...

I'll answer for you; Nothing, it has absolutly nothing to do with the topic at hand.
