McCain Out of Touch on More Than Just LGBT Issues
Okay, we were told that there was no money to provide healthcare to poor kids, properly take of our soldiers who had their minds and bodies shattered in Iraq, fix our crumbling schools, repair our national infrastructure or rebuild New Orleans. But, now George Bush is requesting $700 billion to bail out the financial services industry that he, Dick Cheney, John McCain and the rest of the “of the rich, by the rich and for the rich” Republican Party has destroyed?
Struggling to stave off financial catastrophe, the Bush administration on Friday laid out a radical bailout plan with a jawdropping price tag _ a takeover of a half-trillion dollars or more in worthless mortgages and other bad debt held by tottering institutions.
And, now John McCain, who is still in some economic Never-Neverland thinking the “fundamentals of our economy are strong,” wants our healthcare system to be more like the banking system.
I am no economist. I don’t even play one on TV, but I do know that we cannot survive four more years of the Bush/Cheney/McCain brigade wrecking even more havoc on the national economy to benefit their “drill here, drill now” overlords. We need a serious change in Washington and that change won’t come from someone who has been in Congress for nearly three decades and has only now discovered the word “change.”
How can any American committed to rebuilding our country and taking back our government consider voting for John McCain after eight long years in which the GOP has taken our country from a budget surplus to the largest deficit in our nation’s history and the brink of economic meltdown?
