One Response to “Republicans: Unemployment Benefits Must be Paid For, But Tax Cuts for the Rich Don’t”
In these rough economic times is it right to borrow money to help the jobless?
Republicans say NO. Borrowing that money is just going to add to the already bloated deficit.
But Republicans sing a different tune when it comes to spending billions of dollars in borrowed money for reconstruction in Iraq.
American taxpayers…including many now in the ranks of the unemployed spent tens of billions of dollars building new schools , roads and bridges in Iraq. We trained and equipped their entire army and police forces. We spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to get their electrical grid working and to provide clean drinking water. We built hospitals for them. Even gave cash grants to shopkeepers so they could keep their businesses up and running.
And ever nickle that went into all those projects is borrowed money. Money our children will have to repay when they are adults.
Now when it comes to helping AMERICANS, the Republicans want to play scrooge.
Republicans seem to have more concern for Iraqis rather than Americans.
