Thanks for remind us of the 2008 Republican “solution” to the economic and fiscal problems we were facing four years ago. I am so grateful to the GOP for the political ads that ask us to compare what we had four years ago to what we have today, that for the first time in my life I am considering buying and sending a Thank You note to the GOP!
The GOP has done what they can to make huge holes in the social safety net.
Republicans are so bent on re-creating a feudalistic society, that I ask myself many times: what’s in the minds of middle and lower class people that vote GOP. Are they nuts ??
FOX news and the lies of commercially sponsored news programs gets the better of those who do not want to do the research…..Remember what the GOP said about fact checkers?
The safety net has always been despised by the ‘John Birch’ republicans. What DO these people have against ordinary folks living out their last years with a modicum of comfort and self respect? They have spent their working lives paying into Social Security and Medicare; not for living in the lap of luxury, but to keep a roof over their heads and have access to good health care. Why deprive people of these very basic needs, when a government run program such as SS (which never added one thin dime to the deficit) can provide a bit of breathing room?
there plan has nothing to do with helping most people and every thing to do with making the rich richer
It’s nothing short of criminal but for the GOP, that’s nothing new.
