Republicans Oppose Earned Income Tax Credit With Selective Use Of "Fraud"

by: RDemocrat

Fri Jan 31, 2014 at 09:15:39 AM EST

You would think that it would be a no-brainer. You know, for the Republican Party that always wants to portray itself as trying to cut taxes for everyone. As always with this modern Republican Party however, "everyone" usually does not include any of us. That is why it is no surprise that Republican "leaders" are not embracing President Obama's tax plan as put forth in his State of the Union address.

The Crucial Fight For Our Social Security

by: RDemocrat

Thu Aug 15, 2013 at 01:43:42 AM EDT

As Social Security celebrates its 78th year of helping Americans retire one fact remains as true as always. The Republican Party would do anything to weaken this program or do away with it entirely. This really should not come as a surprise to anyone. When you take a good hard look at what Social Security has accomplished for America in the past 78 years one fact is unavoidable. It runs completely contrary to the goals the Republican Party have had for our country during that same time span.

A Simple Question About Wages

by: RDemocrat

Tue Jul 16, 2013 at 03:42:23 AM EDT

While issues such as immigration, going "nuclear" on nominees in the Senate, and the NSA program continue to dominate headlines and are important in their own right one issue continually gets overlooked by the media, the politicians and even American people. The fact that Americans are working harder and harder and their wages are not increasing and for many people have actually dropped. To me, the most pressing issue for our country and economy right now is that millions of Americans work and play by the rules and still aren't allowed enough of the fruits of their labors to contribute back to the American economy.

How Dare You Uncle Sam!!

by: RDemocrat

Wed Jul 10, 2013 at 00:06:41 AM EDT

It is no big secret that the Republican Party and their propogandists hate the American government. They are constantly railing against their government at every opportunity. The question is, why all this hatred of our government? Is it because of a bloated beauracracy that intrudes upon American rights? Is it because tax dollars are being given in Corporate Welfare to companies that ship jobs overseas? Of course not. The real reason is simple. The government sets rules and regulations that attempt to keep the powerful from preying upon the weak in this country. And of course, worse yet the government dares to feed children that would otherwise go hungry.

The Republican Abandonment of Duty

by: RDemocrat

Sat May 25, 2013 at 22:51:36 PM EDT

It was far past time somebody said it. It is sad that it takes a potential disastrous event for someone to stand up and do it. However, it nice that someone is finally telling the truth. The truth about the fact that a Republican led House of Representatives have been dodging their Constitutional duties to the American people. They are withholding much needed funding that even if it were not needed to create jobs, is desperately needed to upgrade America's ailing infrastructure. Their only motivation? To make a centrist President that has "reached out" to them look bad.

On "Made Up Tales"

by: RDemocrat

Sun May 19, 2013 at 14:06:45 PM EDT

The Republican Party knows no shame or humility. In their witch hunt to capitalize politically on an American tragedy they seem to have forgotten one thing. While four Americans tragically lost their lives in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 while Barack Obama was President, nearly three thousand lost their lives on American soil under a Republican President who had warning on Sept. 11, 2001.

Republicans Seek to Avoid Sacrifice Again

by: RDemocrat

Sat May 18, 2013 at 11:50:33 AM EDT

Republicans are determined to "fix" everything except what is really wrong with America. While trying yet again to repeal Obamacare and obsessing over every imagined scandal in the book they are refusing to pass a jobs bill to provide relief to working Americans. Worse yet is their obsession with the deficit and making anyone but themselves pay for it. Now, yet again they are chasing imagined problems and punishing the working class.

The 2.2 Million Republican Jobs Gap

by: RDemocrat

Mon May 06, 2013 at 22:13:39 PM EDT

It has been no secret that the Republican Party led by Mitch McConnell has been trying their best to slow the recovery from the Great Recession and keep America from being able to get back to work. At first they were hoping this effort would limit President Obama to one term. Of course when Americans saw through this ruse and reelected the President Republicans were in no mood to work to get our country back on track. They have sought instead to punish Americans for giving President Obama a second term. Now, not only have they refused to pass a Jobs Bill, but have insisted on Austerity an idea that not only seeks to balance the budget on the backs of the very Americans who have given all the sacrifice but is costing our country over two million jobs in a time when Americans desperately need jobs.

Flexibility the Latest Ploy Against Workers by Republicans

by: RDemocrat

Mon May 06, 2013 at 18:23:31 PM EDT

The modern Republican Party just never knows when to quit. They have already outsourced our middle-class. They have already depressed our wages. They have shamelessly redistributed our nation's wealth to the very top. Even more shamelessly they have forced working Americans to pay for the debt their policies of trickle-down has created. Through it all they have blocked anything that would help create jobs and put suffering Americans back to work.

Enough Already!!

by: RDemocrat

Mon Apr 29, 2013 at 18:17:29 PM EDT

With all the problems that have beset working Americans that the Republicans in Congress simply refuse to address there is one thing I am pretty certain Americans are getting tired of hearing about from the Republicans in the House. The attack on the American embassy in Benghazi that tragically claimed four American lives. Not that those lives weren't important, but now they are simply being used as pawns in a political game to deflect attention from the fact that Republicans simply do not care to allow an American recovery and to score cheap political points against President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The Modern Republican Party: A Coalition of Gangs

by: RDemocrat

Sat Apr 27, 2013 at 23:23:19 PM EDT

Sometimes it is hard to sum up the modern Republican Party. I mean, we all know they care little about their country and nothing about almost all of the folks that live within it. Of course, they are always talking some kind of garbage about the Constitution, "Conservative values"  and "American exceptionalism" but one thing that has been increasingly apparent over the last few decades. They care nothing about any of these things. All they care about is keeping power so that they can continue to keep the good times rolling for themselves and the increasingly slim piece of America they do represent.

Progressive Vision Over Austerity Is The Only Hope For America

by: RDemocrat

Fri Apr 19, 2013 at 01:32:07 AM EDT

It is no secret to millions of Americans that career politicians in Washington D.C. simply do not seem to care one bit about the real problems Americans face today. That is evident with their refusal to concentrate on the real crises in America right now namely a jobs crises and an income crises. Instead they are drumming up the "debt crises" as the main problem we face and are telling all of us that we are the ones who caused it. Worse yet, even when it comes to the debt these politicians have it all wrong.

Washington Finally Gets Bi-Partisanship

by: RDemocrat

Wed Apr 17, 2013 at 10:53:50 AM EDT

A funny thing is happening. While not being able to reach a bi-partisan consensus on just about anything like a jobs bill, immigration reform, or fair deficit reduction that would help the American people as a whole and after being in gridlock for so long on so many things Congress and the President finally achieved bi-partisanship. What they agreed on unfortunately should not surprise anyone.

Obama Sales Pitch Falls on Deaf Ears: We Hope

by: RDemocrat

Tue Apr 16, 2013 at 13:30:36 PM EDT

In his attempt to sway Republicans to reach some "grand bargain" the President has made a few mistakes. First, you cannot compromise with the unwilling and Republicans have shown no matter what the President does to "reach out" to them they are going to hate him nonetheless. Also, no matter what "compromise" is offered one thing Republicans will never do willingly. Allow themselves or those they truly represent to sacrifice one red cent towards the problems they caused with their own idiocy and greed.

Rand Paul Begins His "Clean-Up" Tour For 2016

by: RDemocrat

Wed Apr 10, 2013 at 23:42:05 PM EDT

One thing we can all be certain of. The Mad Doctor with the twisty curls who became the Mad Senator now very much wants to be the Mad President. However, one thing that stands in his way is one simple fact. The American voter sees things a little different and is a little less forgiving than the voters of Kentucky for radical views. So to actually be President Rand Paul is going to have to embark on a "cleaning up" tour of radical statements he made that were forgiven in his Kentucky Senate campaign. Today, that "cleaning up" tour began in Washington D.C. at Howard University.

While Mitch McConnell whines to the FBI today about the tapes that show the inner workings of his campaign the campaign to defeat him is still in high gear. The Senate Majority pack is up with a website showing just why Mitch is so wrong for Kentucky.

McConnell Tapes: Beating Hypocrites at Their Own Game

by: RDemocrat

Tue Apr 09, 2013 at 15:07:42 PM EDT

One thing we have always been sure of around here. Mitch McConnell is a Washington politician that will do anything to keep hold of his power he uses to destroy America and the interests of American workers. One need only look at his record of bailing out the bankers, but refusing to allow any funds to be used to create jobs in our country. Indeed, after obstructing progress for America as a whole and enriching himself in the process McConnell has seen his favorability plummet. Now, it has come to light just how low this piece of garbage would seek to continue shipping jobs overseas and redistributing wealth upwards.

President Obama: Are You Ready to Fight Yet?

by: RDemocrat

Mon Apr 08, 2013 at 15:28:19 PM EDT

For a long time we have been telling the President and all Democrats one thing. There is no need to try and compromise or "reach out" to the modern Republican Party led by such "people" as John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Indeed reaching out to these folks only leads to one thing. Pulling back a bloody nub. And now for a President that seems all to willing to sell his base and his beliefs down the river for some "grand bargain" to create some sort of legacy to be "proud" of we can only ask this. Ready to fight yet?

Rick Perry: A Fitting Ambassador

by: RDemocrat

Mon Apr 01, 2013 at 23:48:53 PM EDT

One thing we have sworn to fight against around here.The uncaring idiocy and greed of the leaders of the modern Republican Party and their attempt to leave huge swaths of the American people out of the prosperity that should be shared by all of us. In their selfish vision of our country only they and those at the very top should be able to share in the promise of this great land. That is why they constantly outsource our jobs, depress our wages and allow our infrastructure to rot for a simple reason. So they can pocket all our nation's wealth and leave the rest of us to fight for the scraps from their table. Now the latest example is Rick Perry, disgraced former Presidential candidate and Governor of Texas.

A Dark Truth Behind the Newest Rand Paul Hypocrisy

by: RDemocrat

Sun Mar 24, 2013 at 15:26:15 PM EDT

Rand Paul has been making a lot of headlines lately. It appears as if the Mad Doctor with the Twisty Curls has his sights set on one thing. Being President, something his father never even got close to. In that regards it seems as if Rand Paul thinks his brand of anti-government at all costs libertarianism will help Republicans do something they have only done once in twenty years. Win the popular vote in a Presidential election. However, as with his filibuster on drone attacks on American soil one fact continues to ring true. Even when Rand Paul says or does something that seems on the surface to be the right thing, he must lace it with a poisonous dose of hypocrisy because of the underlying dark truth of his true vision for America.
