We know (you do know, don’t you?) that the Regressive (Republican) agenda has never been about jobs or reducing the deficit. Somehow they’ve managed to get hold of the discourse and feed their BS to the ignorant and uninformed. Read George Lakoff and Thom Hartmann for excellent discussions of this point.
Here’s a nice overview of the differences in the current (Obama) plan vs the Regressive (lack of) plan. And by the way, how soon we all forget…. Obama’s policies did not get us into our current economic situation- George W. Bush did. The Regressive ideas of reviving his policies, for example, extending the tax cuts to the people who need them the least, will just exacerbate the problem.
Be sure to vote in November. Your kids are counting on you.
