Letter about the administration

When today’s Republicans dominate, then business interests and short-term profits usually dominate. Health and environmental issues are of little concern, as the tire burning plant foes are discovering. The profits of the few always come first, except for a few showpiece legislative efforts to pretend that they care.

In order to keep Wall Street disruptions to a bare minimum after 9-11, the Bush Administration forced the EPA to say, “The general public should be very reassured by initial [air] sampling.” They knew this was a lie. What a cruel way to treat survivors, rescuers and citizens. Their Clear Skies Initiative‚ allows power plants to increase pollution. The cynical doublespeak stinks almost as bad as the pollution hurts. Endless lies took us to war and will cost taxpayers at least $100 billion and possibly much more (we certainly can’t wreak havoc over there and then walk away). And that sadly lacking leader in Washington says, “Bring ‘em on.” And our soldier’s take more bullets.

Three tax cuts for the rich plus cuts and eliminations of dividend and inheritance taxes sets the stage for the perpetually workless rich. A deficit that may reach $5 trillion in a decade means “don’t count on social security.” It also means privatize more government services so the rich can make even more money on former government functions. Corporate welfare is the only acceptable welfare and if the rich incorporate in foreign nations then we applaud their ingenuity and they can have all the fat government contracts they want and never pay any taxes.

I’m hopeful that everyday a few more Americans see these evils and are determined to change the course of our nation toward a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
