The Republicans says the same old thing over and over such as we need a smaller government, we need to lower the debt, a nickel raise of the minimum wage law is going to cause a big lost of jobs, and that labor unions are causing businesses to close. Well, Clinton balanced the budget and left us with a surplus then Reagan stopped control of the market giving a free market which was supposed to correct itself.
But, what happened. The unregulated big business ran our economy into a ditch causing the greatest recession since the great depression. Relative to the national debt that republicans wanted to keep low, Bush started two wars which are costing over a billion per month, and used all surpluses and put us into the largest national debt ever. This all came from a republican administration.
Republicans continue to serve the corporate interests. I can safely say that corporate interests pushed Bush into starting the two wars because they wanted to capitalize on the resources in the Mideast. Republicans are fighting Obamacare tooth and nail not because it is bad for the people; instead, because it is going to cost the rich that are owners of the big businesses of our health care.
When republicans says that something is going to bankrupt the country they actually mean that it is going to cost the upper 1% earners future profits. Ironically, the lost in profits of these millionaires and billionaire would not affect their lives in the lest bit; only dampen their egos, but it has been evidenced that these people place a few more profits over the life of thousands of people who run out of insurance money due to a limit placed on the insurees’ policies (Obamacare eliminates this cutoff and left to die clause).
Under Obamacare everyone can afford healthcare; even the very poor can be covered.
This is a change from my category for subject matter, but since the shutdown of our government, I thought that I should tell the truth as I see it.
