GOP, Dems nearing deal on taxes, jobless benefits
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press – 1 hr 52 mins ago
WASHINGTON – An outline of a bipartisan economic package is emerging that would temporarily extend the Bush-era tax rates for all taxpayers, while extending jobless benefits for millions of Americans.
This is insane. Maybe it's true that dems are just as corporate oriented as the repubs; they are just as manipulated but perceived differently. Maybe the power mongers and resource hoarders are just as involved in the manipulation of the left as they are of those on the right.
Why else would the dems be so impotent? Why else would they not be getting on the bully pulpit and demanding, in front of the American people, that this issue be resolved in a manner that taxes the rich fairly and provides for the unemployed and the middle class that has been devastated.
Look around you!! What happened to the middle class and all those manufacturing jobs? Does no one care or notice? Is it because they were so working class oriented?
Come on don't let it be true. I'm begging the democratic leadership to stand up and deliver us a real package that taxes the upper 1% fairly and extends unemployment benefits to those who really need them.
Ask yourself; why did the republicans get everything they wanted while the dems seem to continually come up empty?
Are they spineless or co-conspirators?
