Hello All I don't know if it is my age (55) or just the things I seen throughout my life..But somewhere in the early 2000's I started to see the world as a much diifferent place..Being sucked into this Republican crap like a piece of dirt into a Hoover Sweeper.Lately many people scream at me as if thier believes are right..Most conseritive Christians buy into this Republican Crap' and Fox News is the King of the sound bite...What these brain dead people are falling for is a self serving agenda that goes 180% againist what the bible teachs..Everyday I have someone go on and on about "Obama Care" and I feel the "Working Poor" who Service us all deserve health care.Do they think that the Walmart and/or McDonalds workers don't deserve health care? Plus many other low paid workers That thier lives are expendable? These are people that service all of us! So till someone comes up with a better idea to insure the working poor I say Shut Up !..Some politicans go as far as want to do away with the minimum wage..This sounds like a perfect world to me -Rich people pay no taxes and have slaves..As for the power of Greed they(Republicans) are going to any length to win..Low end folks don't need to vote..Do I think the path the country we are on is a good one? NO but the sweet sound of "Austeritiy" will be the final straw the will kill this nation...The Paul Ryan Budget give the millionaires over a trillion in tax cuts over ten years...Silly for someone who wants to cut the budget? All Great Empires Fall when the Top fails to take heed of the brothers and sisters here at the bottom..The cream will rise to the top....History is about to rewrite it's self and very soon..

Not good options to pick on this question Thom. So while I voted yes, I actually would have preferred to say no, but then it will depend on SCOTUS, but perhaps Justice Thomas will err on the right side again like he did with the AFHC Law. One can only hope. There are so many laws that are really unconstitutional and I don't see them saying a word about those.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
