  •  Has Obama "ever" invited the Progressive Caucus (8+ / 0-)

    to the White House?  I do remember when the Progressive Caucus asked to meet with the President, not once, but twice, during health care legislation and they were turned down along with a nasty comment by Rahm.

    •  if that fact alone (0+ / 0-)

      does not show where his interest are.
      We did notvelect businessmen, lobbyist, ect to represent us.
      We elected Congress persons.
      But who does he listen to?  
      And why the fuck are we cutting social programs in this Country, while our government gives away BILLIONS to other Countries?  
      We invade other countries forvthe corporations.
      Our taxes go to the MIC, Contracters, ect., so the corporations can get their hands on other countries resources.
      Our military invades other countries for the corporations, but we pay for it.
      They went in to Iraq for oil.
      We pay, they keep the goods, then gouge us again.
      If we are so broke, stand down the jets that fly everyday at numerous bases all over the country wasting the very commodity we are fighting for.
      And as someone mentioned, take away Congress's perks.
      Look at how many staff members, drivers, aids ect Congress and the military have.
      There is NO reason to go after safety nets besides the fact that they want to.
      How much does a drone, UAV, guns, tanks, bullets, planes cost?  
      Nope, they just want to do it.
      I do not know why.
      Except they are horrible peoplecwho do not care if kids starve, or the elderly starve.
      And why arevthere so many homeless vets?  

      America never needed so much in the last election and got so little.
