GOP hates Republican moderates
For the life of me, I cannot understand why the GOP wants to lose the support of middle Americans by shooting their own feet. According to reports, the GOP plans to oppose the re-election of the three moderate Republicans who voted for the Stimulus package. The GOP will support any Republican opponent who opposes these three brave Republican Senators.
Maybe it’s time for the suffering middle America to tell the GOP to take a hike!
Middle America has been screwed long enough. We deserve something better than trickle down economic policies that left so many of us out in the cold with no jobs, no credit, our homes values shot to heck, our retirement accounts emptied, and our kids without the wherewithal for a decent education.
Obama’s plan may not solve all our problems, but it’s better than the nothing at all. Japan waited years before taking action. They lost a decade. Should we do the same, taking the chance of losing a decade of growth and productivity…or should we jump right in quickly to save the world’s largest economy? We now have the highest job losses in 34 years. How many more middle Americans need to lose their jobs before the GOP gets reality? How many more small and mid sized businesses have to shut down before the GOP understands the reality forced on us today?
We all deserve better than the GOP has delivered to us middle Americans.
After WWII when millions of US Vets were unemployed, Pres. Eisenhower pushed through a stimulus bill that built the interstate highway system, making the US the leader in transportation systems, and created huge numbers of jobs. We can create the systems of the future again, putting the US on the leading edge of technology, transportation, and education, if only we repudiate the GOP do-nothing, give it all to the rich ideologues.
The three moderate GOP senators extraordinary bravery in defying their party should be hailed and supported. I applaud them.
