Post 2.3 - Questioning

So.

We don't have money. The government is broke. We have to cut or eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, National Public Radio, assistance for low-income and elderly citizens to heat their homes, and Public Television. In other words, several institutions that have been proven to offer often significant benefits to the American public.

BUT

We have money to continue giving subsidies to oil companies?

We have money to continue giving subsidies to agro-businesses?

We have $500,000 to hire an expensive lawyer to defend DOMA?

AND

None of the 150 proposed bills holding BP accountable for the oil spill or to strengthen safety rules for the oil industry have been passed?

Disgusting. All of it.

Exactly how bad do things have to get before somebody does something for the everyday people of this country and not just the corporations or the bigoted ignorant to keep their votes?
