That’s right, the new ‘budget’ is out and already the house has passed and the senate will surely follow. What is touted as the ‘budget’ of compromise, is actually a budget that is more austere than the original Ryan Path to Prosperity, and that is told to we the people, as being very good.
Sure, good for who-should be the question to ask. It surely isn’t good for the long term unemployed,who for their Christmas present, will lose their benefits- it surely isn’t good for the hungry-as the November cuts were not fixed- its not good at all for federal employees who will lose even more of there pension benefits and its not good at all for the VA beneficiary who will also be hit for costs- so who is it good for?
Its good for the austerity and deficit hawks and good for defense(of course their budgets were allowed to be higher) and its good for the corporations and the elite-as their tax rates were not touched and its good for those in congress-as their pensions are not at risk- Is it good for our economy? NO Is it good for the people? NO Is it good for the hungry, the elderly, the children and the working poor? NO Is it good for our failing infrastructure? NO Is it good for the unemployed in need of jobs? NO- So Austerity wins and we the people lose, once again.
If they are able to pull off the fast tracking of the two trade agreements, it will finalize the creations of the United Corporations of America and will put an end to democracy. Can we fight this?
YES WE CAN- that means each and everyone of us-telling all we know both online and offline about what is going on in our government and in our country and ensuring that they then become engaged in the process and they also tell everyone. Our voice can be so loud that it will deafen the voice of corporations, but only if we use it.
USE YOUR VOICE AND ALWAYS KNOW THAT EACH AND EVERY VOICE IS IMPORTANT AND YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Peace and may joy, harmony and love surround you.
