Yesterday, Because he is STILL More Afraid of Grover Norquist Than he IS of the WRATH of the American People, Eric Cantor Took his Marbles, and Went HOME. He WALKED out of the Budget and Debt Ceiling Talks after Being INFORMED that ANY Package to DEAL with our Fiscal Problems MUST Include some New REVENUES, a FACT ALL...Economists Agree Upon.
For Too Long, The Teapublicans have BLINDLY Worshiped their God, Grover Norquist. This is Madness. ANY Honest Human Being can SEE, and Must ADMIT, that Slashing Taxes in 2001 and 2003, and Funding 2 Wars on Borrowed Chinese Money for Years and Years, was a RECIPE for DISASTER! It Not ONLY...Did NOT Work, and CREATED NO Jobs over 8 Years for Bush, it PUT us in a HORRIBLE HOLE. Then came the CRASH of 2008, and the Government AND the FED had to Spend $2 TRILLION - to Avoid a Depression.
NOW...The KOCH Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, and the Waltons, who are 100% Behind the Creation of the TEA PARTY, INSIST That the Road to Return to Fiscal Sanity Must Run RIGHT OVER the BACKS of Hard Working Middle Class Families who have Already been Beaten Down by the Fiscal Madness of the LAST Ten Years!
WHEN...are the American PEOPLE - Going to TELL Grover Norquist, and ALL his Worshippers, and ALL his TV Shills on FOX, and all the BLIND Radio Talkers....to GO TO HELL!
ALL...we Have to Do, to FIX Our Problems, is Use a Balanced Approach. A SANE Approach. There Must Be Spending Cuts: In DEFENSE, in Government Waste and Fraud. In Redundant Programs AND Agencies. NO More TAXPAYER Charity to Giant Corporations! NO More LOOPHOLES for Large Businesses to AVOID Paying TAXES, even as they are SHIPPING Jobs - OVERSEAS! NO More Big Oil Subsidies! Some Elevation of Rates for the Wealthiest Americans. And YES, some Improvement in Medicare Delivery Systems, to REDUCE Costs. USING this BALANCED Approach, along with Spending CAPS for ALL Federal Spending EXCEPT Infrastructure, and R&D, we Can Eliminate over $3 Trillion in Federal Spending over the NEXT TEN YEARS!
THIS...would SATISFY the Markets that we are SERIOUS about Moving toward a Balanced budget, and it would IGNITE a NEW BOOM in America! And it would DO IT...without DESTROYING AMERICA!!!!
But, SADLY, it LOOKS like the Teapublicans are MORE Interested in HOLDING the Economy HOSTAGE to THEIR Pet Dreams than they are in ACTUALLY Solving any Problems. And of Course, as Always, they are COUNTING on the Rove and FOX Spin Machine to CON The Sheep into Actually Believing..."It's them Liberals' FAULT"...if It ALL Blows up, and we Fall APART! Which we WILL...if these Intransigent Teapublicans won't Start ACTING in the BEST Interest of the United States of America, Instead of WORRYING About what the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist WANT.
If THOSE Clowns Want to Run things in this Country....Then They Can....RUN for Office! In the MEANTIME...we NEED Desperately - To TELL them, and ALL their Shills in the MEDIA...to GO TO HELL!!!
WE'VE Got a COUNTRY to SAVE!!! And Frankly, The Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, Limbaugh, Beck, and Norquist - Have ALREADY Done this Nation...GREAT Harm, and it will Take YEARS to Recover from the Damage they have DONE to Us!!!
Let's Start - NOW!!!
