Looks like the Republicans are being serious about considering the President's
Proposals. Too bad the President chose to make he center piece of his strategy
for funding the new jobs act raiding soc. sec. via not collecting the necessary
monies to keep the fund solvent. First they spend the money and issue bogus
IOU's, now they just don't collect the money and call it a stimulus for job
creation. All at the expense of the early disabled and poor elderly. Then the
President adds insult to his injury by demogueing anyone that suggest any reform
to the program. Shameless.
The republicans are also excited about the trade deals that will allow US
business to export more jobs to countries where they don't have to pay a living
wage. Not sure how that helps the American economy other than the bottom line
for big business.
