Stop Digging, Stop Burying

No, this post is not about the dredging in Howard County Lakes. It is about the stupid move by the Republican majority in the Congress with the backing of the White House to extend the investor class tax cuts to 2010. How are we as a society going to afford this? Are we going to borrow more money from China? And you know when it comes time to pay for all of these cuts the first thing the Republicans will do will be to cut the very investments our country needs in affordable healthcare, education, infrastructure, not to mention your retirement. And it will not be just the poor in our society which will be hurt, it will be the middle class. Are you as secure as your parents were?And will these cuts affect the wealthy? No, because we are creating in America an apartheid society, divided between the wealthy and the rest of us. They will have their private schools, hospitals, police, colleges, highway lanes and retirement communities and you and I will not be allowed in. If you think a society like that is great, visit Brazil or South Africa and then tell me this is the direction we should follow. So tell the Republican Congress to stop digging this deficit hole and burying our future.
