SchwartzReport: Senate Republicans — 36 of Them — Seek to Screw Labor — And Make Case for Keeping the Senate Democratic in 2014

Corruption, Government, Idiocy

schwartz reportAlmost every day I read stories about Republican actions to subvert the wellbeing of the middle class. It is amazing to me. They just roll in day after day, each one more extreme and hurtful than the one before it. Here is an example. Frankly, and I know this will offend the 14 per cent of my readers who are conservatives, as presently configured ! I do not think is is possible to be an ethical person and to vote Republican. I am sorry, but on the facts, in my view, that is the case.

“As long as we don’t piss off all of the people all of the time, we can keep living large.”

Phi Beta Iota:  The Congress and the two-party tyranny have betrayed the public trust over and over again.  In this instance, the Republicans are demonstrating the total breaking of the social contract with labor, and in passing, demonstrating that the Democrats are the lesser of two evils for 2014.  We are inherently opposed to “unsavory compromises” and acceptance of the lesser of any evil — it is still evil — but we have to acknowledge that for all their faults, the Democrats are slightly less insane and slightly less criminal than the “Republicans.”  One bird, two wings, same shit in two colors.
