Yesterday, on the McClatchy website, there was a story that many Democrats are leaning against repealing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. The reason? Despite the fact that renewing the tax cuts will add billions to the deficit, some Democrats are worried that it will make their re-election more difficult.
So they’d rather cause long-term damage to our nation than risk losing their seats in Congress? Really?
If that’s how they feel, it’s time for them to go! Their attitude only proves what many progressives have thought for some time. A large number of Democrats are gutless wimps who cower at the first challenge from a Republican. Yet these same Democrats speak in general terms about the damage conservative Republicans are doing to this nation.
Personally, I’m sick of it! I’m sick and tired of the Grand Old Party of Liars who represent big business. I’m sick of the Fox Noise machine. I’m sick of the “I’ve got mine, you can’t have yours” whiners otherwise known as the tea party movement. I’m tired of the greed and influence of large corporations. I’m tired of obscenely wealthy conservative puppet masters like the Koch brothers who attempt to control our elections through donations to “think” tanks like the American Enterprise Institute, Americans for Prsoperity, the Cato Institute, FreedomWorks, etc.
But most of all, I’m sick of the cowards who give the Democratic Party a bad name.
