Tax Cuts and Pay Cuts

Several States that have a budget crisis are cutting taxes (revenue), cutting the pay for public employees and cutting programs that help the poor? We are told that everyone has to share in the sacrifice. In reality, only the poor people are sacrificing because the rich are getting tax cuts while the poor are getting pay cuts.

When President Obama wanted to expand healthcare to the poor and uninsured conservatives were outraged. They said the people were against him. Now they are in charge and are cutting workers’ pay and cutting assistance to the poor but they don’t think people should be outraged or against them. Do you see the difference? President Obama wanted to help the poor and uninsured by expanding healthcare coverage. Republican budgets cuts will hurt the poor by cutting their pay and taking away programs that help them. Of course, they are helping the rich by providing them with all kinds of tax cuts.

Ain’t life grand!
