Reality Check

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:02 am by wcnews

As we all sit and rejoice at Tom DeLay resigning we need to keep one thing in mind. It’s him and people like him that are the cause of so much that has gone wrong with our country. And until they’re all gone or out of power this will continue.
Think of things like Medicare Plan D. It never would have passed without the bribery that took place by DeLay while a vote was held open on the house floor for a record time. (As a humorous aside on the Medicare Plan D program read this link.) Tom DeLay and those like him have sat by and not only offered no check on the president but are responsible for the current “Culture of Corruption” and have no sense of remorse or shame. From these so-called conservatives we have deficits bigger than when Reagan and Daddy were president, I didn’t think anyone could run deficits higher than Reagan. But we all know high deficits are just part of the plan. They’ve already started to cut social programs while continuing to cut taxes. Do you think that will create higher deficits? Remember it’s all part of their plan to roll back the New Deal. If any of you lived through the depression or had parents or grandparents (like me) that did - I’m sure you heard the stories too - then you know there was no middle class before the New Deal. And if these so-called conservatives have their way, and are able to finish their plan, there won’t be a middle class when they’re done. Just look at the minimum wage issue., and how many states are taking the lead because the Republicans at the Federal level won’t touch it. Hmm…cheap labor that goes right along with why the corporatist/globalist Republicans don’t mind illegal immigration.
The war they are responsible for starting and continuing to “rubber-stamp” continues to get worse by the day (10 soldiers died in Irag yesterday). They think that it can still be won. Well read this and then see what you think, Uncertainty…

The point of this post is to, once again, try and make people understand and know that REPUBLICANS CONTROL CONGRESS. But not only Congress they control every branch of government, in Texas too! If you don’t like the way things are going the Republicans are to blame. The Democrats have no check on their power. Is one party rule what we need in a Democracy? I don’t think so. What I have to say to the people of TX-31 and TX-22 is, if you want to have your representative in Congress be in the new majority in the next Congress you need to elect a Democrat.
