Republicans: Yearning for a Pothole Nation
After Standard & Poor’s warning about America’s debt crisis, both parties will probably dig their heels in deeper than ever. Republican demagogues and their useful idiots will continue to insist that we need to keep cutting taxes for the wealthiest corporations. If we will just quit strangling these companies with job-killing taxes and cumbersome regulations, they’ll spring back to life and start creating bazillions of new jobs so fast, our heads will be spinning.
Trust them. Come on, Charlie Brown — this time Lucy promises that when you come running in for the kick, she won’t yank the football away.
Over the past ten years, America’s wealthiest corporations have eliminated almost three million jobs. Apparently the Bush tax cuts just didn’t cut deep enough. Republicans want to keep doing the same thing over and over — this time it’ll be different! — and keep rewarding these same companies with more subsidies, lower taxes and fewer regulations. Think of all the new jobs this will create. “Oh boy, there’s gotta be a pony in here somewhere!”
Meanwhile, John Boehner (R—Jack Daniels) seems to be misreading those ubiquitous “American People” he keeps talking about. Polls are showing that most Americans either support gay marriage and/or think that banning gay marriage should be a low priority, considering the real problems facing the country.
But according to Jim Beam, Jr., “The American People” want to spend $500,000 of THEIR tax dollars to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.
With priorities like this, no wonder America is turning into a pothole nation.
