GOP Cuts: Programs for the Poor and Taxes of the Wealthy

by Peter Stern

Many still do not recognize the new Civil War taking place in the U.S. Instead of North vs. South, the battles focus on the Wealthy and the Poorer population.

This could become deadly for many of us, as the GOP has increased its legislative majority and clout at the national, state and local levels and the party is now looking to cut and/or privatize many long-time very American programs, especially those programs for the elderly and the poor. The programs include Social Security, Medicare for the elderly and disabled and Medicaid for the poor and/or elderly. This is a bad move for most Americans.

Meanwhile, both Republicans and Democrats continue to look for ways to line the pockets of the wealthy and/or the corporate sector, who will reap huge profits and will get more tax breaks. All this while the majority of Americans are trying to hold on to their, jobs, homes, health and their dignity.

Contact the President, your Senators and House Representatives and elected officials and tell them to stop the new Civil War. Tax corporations and the wealthy their true share and cut expenditures in other areas, e.g., providing money, goods and services overseas and slow down the American war machine.


 America's government made a commitment to their elderly, disabled and poor. It is time to reaffirm that commitment, NOT destroy it.

Americans still seem dedicated to supporting those who are determined to see America become a third world country, in spite of the fact that once it does become that, their 'share' of the profits will dwindle and THEY will go down the tubes with the rest of us.

You are absolutely correct, pstern. What are we thinking? Are we even bothering to think?

The wealthy also are NOT thinking because when they destroy us, which obviously is the intent and inevitable goal, it will destroy them as well.  You are correct HB that they are looking for a 3rd world nation that will provide cheap labor so they may continue to reap huge profits above all else.  Greed, short-term thinking and stupidity are destroying our nation.

Furthermore, the U.S. is in huge debt that is rapidly growing, but no one is paying income taxes.  The wealthy and middle classes are getting many loopholes through which they avoid paying taxes --- and yet our government continues to spend astronomical amounts for wars and other special interests.  The wealthy also get outright cuts in their taxes, thanks to the Bush tax cuts that Obama and Democrats continue.

You don't have to be Einstein to recognize that it is a short trip to financial, social and political disaster.

Via his many mistakes since he became President, Obama has lost control of this nation.  The extremists have taken over and currently it is the far right-wing GOP, its Tea Party members and corporate radicals who have control over everything.

Right on PStern.  You are so correct.  Much crap is going on including the bailed out banks which are scaming the little people.  The "system" knows that you are getting benefits from the government such as SS, medicare, etc. and the "system' will scam you at every turn.  For instance, have you ever heard of the bank scam machines such as ChexSystems, EWS, or Telechex??  Check 'em out.
