“We intend to create a ground swell of local, state and national support that persuades Congress to pass, and the President to sign, a comprehensive debt deal,” said Fix the Debt spokesman Jon Romano. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/...
Create is the right word; as if the rich can by advertising magic alter the voice of the people.
It's a mirage informing us that we are thirsty.
Beware, the fixers $trillions infuse their confidence, blinding them and why not? The wealthy just succeeded in breaking the economy and fleecing the Treasury to cover their losses and provide a steady stream of new profits.
But they are never satisfied. Bowles and the hundreds of CEO's and hedge-fund gamblers want the people to pay more, to sacrifice again, to enter the Grand Bargain of their choosing.
If not, they are guaranteeing the purchase of politicians, the press, think tanks and the policeman next door until the blood-stone is dry.
And we applaud them?
Damn it to hell. Why does a lobbing campaign that suggests it already has the will of the people behind it need chapters in states? And why has the past, reasonably good Democratic Governor of North Carolina, Jim Hunt, just signed on to lead the charge for Bowles and company in the state?
I'm so tired of money ruling our lives in DC and the unscrupulous idiots, the bought-and-paid-for congresscritters and religious zealots who do money's greedy biding.
Is there no end to this fiscal madness?
Tax the rich and be done.
Touch Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education, SNAP, unemployment or any other worthy government program and pay the ultimate political price in 2014 Democrats, you too Republicans.
We are moving Forward with or without you.
Hear us Erskine Bowles? Hear us congresscritters? Hear us White House? We are the people and do not appreciate taxation without representation which is what this truly will be if you leaders take the advice of Bowles and Simpson.
Over the Cliff dudes and we will have your political backs. Give in to the corporate agenda and peace be with you as you will have committed political and economic suicide for no logical reason.
