In my last post I showed how $61 Billion dollars in budget cuts proposed by the House republicans will result in the loss of 700,000 jobs. Republicans are trying to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and the hard working Americans.
If there was any doubt that republicans want to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and the hard working Americans, just look at their latest maneuvers in the House.
- The republicans voted down a Democrat motion to recommit that would have stripped the five largest oil companies of taxpayer subsidies, saving tens of billions of dollars in taxpayer funds. TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
- A similar vote two weeks ago to recoup $53 billion in taxpayer funds from Big oil was also voted down. 53 BILLIONS OF DOLLARS
Why not stop giving money to the oil companies rather than taking away benefits to people who need them to live?
