Why are the Republican politicians so adamant about not raising the debt ceiling? They raised it 7 times under Bush Jr., they didn't have a problem raising it under Reagan. Hmmm... all Republican Presidents... Can anyone else see through the thick haze of stench that is clouding over the truth of our Nation's economic future? That stench?... Grover Norquist. What does Grover have to do with our financial woes and the debt ceiling that has been in the news night and day? Let's get to know Grover a little better shall we?
Grover is a non politician, a friend to the big corporations, and he has come up with a stupid, unAmerican pledge that ALL Republican politicians must take and promise their loyalty to Grover and his corporate backers. If they don't take this pledge, Grover and his posse will make sure that they are never elected again. This pledge is not to the President, not to the taxpayers, and not even for the good of our Country. This pledge promises no new taxes and makes sure that the big corporations get BIG tax breaks for using their corporate jets. We all like the idea of no new taxes, but when the Republicans talk about no new taxes, they're not talking about tax breaks for Mom & Pop down the street, they're not talking about tax cuts for you and me, they're talking about tax breaks for the big corporations that generates billions and billions of dollars. These companies give their money to Grover to ensure that they can do business anyway they want without paying their fair share of taxes and get breaks and loopholes to escape paying what they rightfully owe. Can we say Citizens United?
I need a pot of decaff right now!!!!!!
