On the first anniversary of S&P downgrading the credit rating of the United States of America interest rates are skyrocketing, the USD is worthless, we can't import oil, and it takes a wheelbarrow of money to buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Oh wait, none of that happened and Treasury bills continue to rise in price on auction (lowering the cost to the government). The Republicans bloviate about all the money that Obama is borrowing. Never mind that he's forced by Republicans to continue Bush's spending policies, and he's getting the money for free.
Sure we have to pay the money back, but since rich people have trillions to loan the government at near zero interest, maybe they could pay more taxes. Debt really is just paper, it can be run through the shredder at anytime. Why the right wants to give a big slice off the top of everything to the "do nothing" rich completely escapes me. They are incensed that liberals would feed the poor, but they spend literally thousands of times as much to feed the idle rich.
"But, but, but they're job creators!" Does anybody buy that line anymore? If we maintain the class of inherited wealth because they provide leadership and moral guidance to the nation, it's really those jobs that need to be outsourced. Or rather, we need to start doing leadership for ourselves after the greedy, useless bastards have been kicked to the curb. We can all have our jobs back, and our small businesses back if we get rid of the incompetent economic "managers". We can have decent education for our children, bridges that are safe to drive on, healthcare that is envy of the world instead of ranked 28th, and on and on. Everything we had before the 30 year conservative nightmare began.
