The political comic to the left is the apt characterization of the Republican Party from liberals. A characterization of the left by the right would be of bleeding heart liberals who nothing more than Robin Hood wannabes – taking from the rich and giving to the poor.
One is more correct than the other. Hopefully it won’t take you too long to realize which one.
Of course it is the Republican Party. After the last two years you could even throw in the Democratic Party with it’s weakness of progressive policies. Here is the bottom line. Both parties are at least partially sold out to the rich and corporate masses. The progressive portion of the Democratic Party is for the middle class and the working poor.
The entire Republican Party, on the other hand, is completely sold on helping the rich and then that could possibly make those earning less somehow earn more down the road. The trickle down theory. Sorry it doesn’t work. We have seen that in the last 10 years with the Bush tax cuts that were unfortunately extended. What is worse is that I am baffled by the fact middle of the road Americans buy into this notion. How is that possible? Have Republicans some how made their lives better? Not really.
This is a Republican Party that wants to repeal the health care reform bill. A recent study shows that 129 million people would be flagged for pre-existing conditions. Prior to the reform this could be cause to deny someone coverage.
The study found that one-fifth to one-half of non-elderly people in the United States have ailments that trigger rejection or higher prices in the individual insurance market. They range from cancer to chronic illnesses such as heart disease, asthma and high blood pressure.
Completely unacceptable if you agree that our country should be made a little more fair. If you disagree with that idea… well, then there is no purpose to reading this site. Progressives want to give someone a helping hand on those bootstraps Republicans think people can somehow pull themselves up by. Yet, Republicans fail to remember that many of them had a lucky break, a great family, a great community or network that also pulled on their bootstraps.
