An Underclass View of the Republican-Tea Party Agenda
The Republican and Tea Party made a lot of promises. These promises were made to scared people, jobless people, and generally confused people. The Republican-Tea Party claims a mandate from these people. They promised these people jobs, and that’s the promise that got the people’s vote. As far as jobs are concern, it seems the GOP wants to reduce jobs in the public sector before they increase jobs in the private sector, go figure. The GOP says that public employment is not fiscally sound and a tax revenue drain of the people’s money. They must feel that they should unemployed a few million more American and then open the jobs to the private sector. Many people by then will take any job for any pay. The mandate of the GOP as far as jobs were concerned wasn’t bait and switch, it was job creation.
Another promise was to control out of control spending, by the President of the United States of America. They made this promise knowing that in order to deal with the financial crisis faced by the Nation’s economy when he took office; it would require a massive influx of cash to reverse the recession. They knew that the American people were mad as hell with the Federal Government for bailing out Wall Street prior to and after the American people lost billions on Wall Street. The Republican-Tea Party says if they can de-fund Obamacare, cut aid to poor, women, children, the hungry, the sick, the unemployed, and eliminate all social entitlements; it would help to control the out of controlled spending. The GOPTP also want to cut revenue to the government to fund social, regulatory, and Infrastructural projects by cutting Business and Corporate taxes until the State and Federal governments has no or not enough revenue to operate. Billions of dollars in subsidies (Corporate and Big Business entitlements), is a must for the GOPTP’s attempt to control the out of controlled spending. Continuing the Bush tax cut for the rich was another way of the GOPTP denying the government money to spend. I don’t believe the GOPTA has any agenda or good ideas about controlled spending. Everybody knows the economy is just hanging on at this time in the attempted recovery. To halt and eliminate government spending all of a sudden could send the Nation back into recession or depression and guaranteed Obama’s reelection. I believe that if the Nation wasn’t on the brink of disaster, Obama may not be President. I also believe America needed a Man like Obama with his unique intellect and understanding that he is so hated for having, to stand the Nation’s economy up after it stumbled and fell. The Grand Old Tea Party seems to be trying to stop and reverse the Obama lead economy recovery. The Republican’s #1 agenda is to make sure that Obama is a one term president. The tea party has three #1 agendas as far as the underclass can see #1a repeal or defund Obamacare, #1b stop or defund anything that would make Obama look presidentially successful, #1c stop the government from spending now!, yesterday, at this minute and take the country back from the Federal government and give it to the State governments, for the first time. Senator Ryan’s 6 plus trillion dollar deficit reduction plan was a joke that wasn’t funny. He knew while he was preparing the bill that he intended to include the defunding of Obamacare and that it would not pass the Senate and if it did Obama would veto it. The American people can find theatrics at the opera or theater not the Nation’s Capitol. A mandate may require getting off the high horses and compromise and get the people back to work. The people don’t have the time or patience for empty gestures, just so it can be said, “I tell you, he told them what he would do if he could do anything he wanted to do”, that’s not problem solving.
The Democrats and Republicans leaders in Washington are ignoring the biggest government drain on revenue. Both parties have for years supported the war on drugs, the war on crime, and the war on terror. Many trillions of tax dollars has been spent for years with minimal results. The underclass believe that there should be declared a war on fraud. Most Americans have heard about the 10 dollar hammers that the government paid 100 dollars each to purchase. Many American don’t realize the housing crisis was the result of fraud committed by the private sector against the Federal housing programs. The private sector fraudulently redistributed billions of federal dollars from the federal government to the private sector yearly. Recently the Federal government decided to administer the student loan program, and not have private sector banks administer the program. That decision was called job killing. The federal government finance programs for the American people like, education funding, health care funding, housing funding, and the Military Industrial Complex, to name a few. These programs are not administered by the federal government in most cases they are administered by the private sector and non-profits organization. The underclass believes that more government watch dogs should be hired to watch the spending of trillions of tax dollars and prevent private sector fraud. I know the GOPTP feel that public employment drains tax dollars, but if a few millions spent can save billion and trillions of tax payers’ dollars from being moved from the government sector to the private sector, its money well spent. If Washington declares a War on Fraud, Tax Loop Holes, and tax cuts for the rich the out of control spending can be controlled. Politicians should stop acting and talking stupid and do what has to be done to protect and serve the majority of the American people. Stop fraud and jail tax fraudulent white collared people and Corporations. The solution should start from the top down not the bottom up.
