Unemployment versus Debt

Why do the Republicans continue to speak of a crisis of debt? Of fiscal challenges?

Our ability to obtain cheap money is not a problem. Interest rates are lower than they ever been. If we need money, it's there. The idea of "debt" implies we've splurged and broke the bank. That's not the case. The U.S. is still a very safe and attractive currency as a pillar of value. Rates on a 30-year fixed mortgage are the lowest they been in over 50 years!

We've got money. We need to spend it. We need to invest.

Unemployment is at almost 9 percent! Nearly 10 percent of our American workforce is being idly used.

We've had the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression. Which was largely caused by Robber Barons, Wall Street, and CEOs. The same people that have up-ended the lives of people all over the world and crashed the economy, not just in America, are the same ones making profits hand-over-fist (AGAIN!) and, also, according to Republicans, must not be increasingly-taxed on some of their ill-gotten gains and asked to pay more?



Public workers?

Make these [Robber Barons, Wall Street, and CEOs] lazy, greedy bastards pay already!!!

Is this country asleep?
