If the Government Shuts Down on April 8th, BLAME THE REPUBLICANS!
Republicans are at it again. Their next move? To shut down the government on April 8th. House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, will unveil a ridiculous 2012 Republican budget this week that proposes dramatic changes, including shutting down Medicare, deeply cutting Medicaid and more Tax Cuts for the rich AND making these Tax Cuts permanent. Obviously their proposal is unacceptable! What's more -- the extremist Tea Party wants even more cuts and vow to protest the GOP unless they do as they are told! In fact, many of these Tax Party Extremists WANT a government shut down and plenty of existing Congresspeople are afraid of them and are promising to do their bidding. Ryan's proposals are extreme! His proposals include: 1. Privatizing Medicare: Instead of our current process, his proposal includes issuing vouchers to the elderly. In other words, discount coupons so the elderly can attempt to find an expensive insurance carrier who may or may not take them, based on pre-existing conditions. The elderly can expect massive co-pays. 2. Slashing Medicaid: Medicaid, which is authorized only to the catastrophically ill and poor/destitute, will be slashed by as much as $1 Trillion. Imagine the horror! The denial of heart, liver, lung, pancreas and bone marrow transplants that we saw in Arizona are just the beginning! 3. More Tax Cuts for the Rich -- This time Permanent! It is clear, the power behind the Republican party is striving for global corporate fascism to replace nationalism and end the idea of "America" all together. If the government shuts down it will mean tens of thousands of layoffs, NO Government Checks of any kind including: . NO government payroll, . NO government purchases . NO tax refunds! If the goverment DOES shut down there is clearly only ONE Party to Blame! Blame it on the Republicans!
