What the Republicans are doing in Wisconsin and other states is a crime and makes me cringe.
It’s an assault on democracy. I thought I lived in the land of the free and the home of the brave. They are only concerned about the great golden cow of obscene tax breaks for the rich, corporations and the defeat of Democrats.
They are taking from the middle class and giving it to the rich. The middle class made us a world power during and after World War II. “Made in USA” labels were respected by the whole world.
The GOP has Wall Street banks and corporations sitting on billions while withholding any investment into small business or hiring the out-of-work public. Why aren’t GOP lawmakers working for the good of the majority of the people?
Never miss a local story.
Before Reagan, the debt was $900 billion. Clinton added $1.6 trillion, under 25 percent of the debt.
Reagan through Bush Jr. added $8.2 trillion, over 75 percent of the debt or three of every four dollars of the national debt by 2009. The $4 trillion since is from failed Republican policies. Today’s debt is because the rich and corporations are not paying their share anymore.
Govs. Rick Scott in Florida and Rick Snyder in Michigan are taking funds from kids and teachers for corporate tax cuts. Snyder wants to take over local governments. This is not democratic or patriotic. It’s un-American.
Republicans are making a very big miscalculation. This will be clear in the next elections – big time.
