It appears that you are a DNC kind of guy here.Take it to the Repubbies on this issue. They need to realize that they LOST the election, that the majority of this country WANT higher taxes on the rich but a continuation of middle-class cuts, and that we will not TOLERATE more game-playing with the debt ceiling, especially if it threatens any American credit rating.
Notify Boehner! Notify McConnell! Tell 'em all!
DO NOT SCREW AROUND WITH OUR LIVES AND ECONOMY!!
Well as a political atheist and a person who refuses to support a corrupt 2 party system. I have some questions for you.
Has either party, the D's or R's done anything to truly give an incentive for manufacturers to manufacture goods in the US?
Has either the D's or R's raised import tariffs to a level where it would cost manufacturers more money to make goods over seas versus in the US?
Has either party actually done what they needed to get out of these so called "Free Trade Agreements"?
Has either part stood up and actually passed laws that help the middle or lower class instead of benefiting their campaign contributors?(I.E. look at General Electric in regards to laws and lobbying both D's and R's.)
Has either party actually done something to reign in the Federal Reserve from pumping more debt based currency into the markets?
When you start to actually look at records between the 2, you will notice the answer to those questions are "no". Rhetoric does not mean shit. They will tell you anything in order to get your support. But their actions are completely different than their rhetoric.
1. Obama and the NDAA. Saying he will veto it if it includes American citizens. Then goes back and signs into law after lobbying Senator Schumer to change the language to include all American citizens.
2. President Bush with those damn GE light bulbs.
3. Nancy Pelosi saying and working on legislation for credit card fees to "help" the people, while at the same time buying into a Visa IPO making millions for herself.
Go on, try to think of one and give an example. Just 1.
