Words of Comfort in a Terrible Economy October 1, 2010

Life is difficult for most people. Almost 20 percent of society in the U.S. is unemployed, underemployed, or has given up altogether and turned to mooching or crime. The top 1 percent of the United States controls 42 percent of the nation’s wealth, the worst economic inequality since the 19th century. There is no middle class; there are criminals, the desperately poor, the working poor, and George W. Bush’s “have-mores.” And now Republicans are insisting that if people who make more than $250,000 a year have to pay Clinton-era tax rates instead of three bleeping percent less than that, the nation’s suffering will be infinitely worse.

If your credit card company pays 0% interest & charges YOU 28.44%, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If no one came when you called 911 because there was no money to pay them, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If your public library had to close for lack of funding, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If your child’s school teaches fundamentalist religion in its “science” classes, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If your county had to change your paved roads to gravel roads for lack of funds, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If your child can’t read and has no textbooks, music, art, or PE, not to mention a bad teacher in a failing school in a depressed area, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If you need an operation & you have no health insurance, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If you got salmonella poisoning and almost died, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If a bridge or highway you use often crumbles into unusability & there’s no money to fix it, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If you lost your job because your corporation outsourced it to China, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.

If there’s no one who will force BP to pay restitution to you, at least GOP “have-mores” got their tax gifts.
