Debt Ceiling, Republican Intransigence, Economy Woes

Warning! The following post is editorial, and is the opinion of this blog author only.

Could Eric Cantor be any more sickeningly transparent in his intransigence? From The Hill on July 8: "Cantor (R-Va.) on Friday said today's jobs report is a strong argument against raising taxes on Americans as part of an agreement to raise the debt ceiling and cut spending." Cantor and his cohorts have repeatedly and vehemently blocked any tax hike for millionaires, billionaires, and corporations. How stupid are we Americans that we are allowing this to happen, allowing our economy to tank, our international credit rating to fall, and our economic leadership to falter? In my opinion, the Republicans who are falling lockstep behind this immoral and falsely presented stance are shameless. In their zeal to see President Obama fail, and at the same time to protect their special interests (you know...those pesky billionaires) they are willing to destroy everything that has made this nation great.

America, don't let them get away with it. Educate yourself, educate your friends and neighbors, learn the truth about revenue and spending and the Bush tax cuts and the dangers to our economy, and then DO SOMETHING. Call your representatives at every level, and tell them we need to TAX THE RICH equitably. Get angry, write letters, wear t-shirts, talk to people, get involved, run for office, vote. DO SOMETHING.
