ECONOMY IMPROVING? DOSEN'T LOOK LIKE IT TO US AS WE PREPARE TO LOSE MY WIFE'S HEALTH CARE INSURANCE...

I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR THE TALKING HEADS ON THE TEEVEE MACHINE YAPPING AWAY ABOUT HOW WELL THE STOCK MARKET AND HOUSING STARTS ARE DOING. THE GREAT NEWS OF THE FAKE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE AND HOW MUCH THIS FRAUDULENT ECONOMIC CATASTROPHE IS IMPROVING.

That said, here is part of an email in response from one of my state Senators in Washington state:

"It’s important to remember that we legislators came to Olympia as teachers, nurses, business professionals and the like interested in strengthening education, improving access to health care and making our state a better place to do business. We did not come here to decimate the kind of core government services that will be weakened in this budget.
I recognize the all-cuts budget we have proposed may not fully reflect Washington values. But it does continue our commitment to the most vulnerable and strategically leaves intact programs with the best chance of surviving a multi-year economic downturn.
This budget doesn’t pick winners and losers. It shares the sacrifice throughout all government programs.
With tax collections continuing to fall, our budget cuts 60 percent deeper than Gov. Chris Gregoire did when she introduced her plan in December. The Senate plan would eliminate as many as 8,000 jobs for teachers, higher education workers and other state employees as well as 10,500 seats in state colleges and universities.
Though both programs would be kept intact, the plan would eliminate subsidized health insurance more than 40,000 of the state’s working poor and more than 3,000 deemed unemployable due to a physical or mental handicap would lose general assistance payments. Funding for hospitals, some children’s vaccines, property poor school districts and nursing homes would be slashed."

NOW I DON'T KNOW WHO IS BULLSHITTING WHOM AROUND HERE, BUT FROM OUT HERE IN THE REAL AMERICA, THINGS AINT LOOKIN SO FUKKEN ROSY!

WE ARE BEING FLIM-FLAMMED BY SOME REAL SMOOTH OPERATORS HERE, AND THERE AINT A DAMNED THING WE CAN DO.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
