Do you ever get to the point where you just don’t care anymore?

December 5, 2010

I’m about at that point with the news on the Bush-era tax cuts.

You read news here and you see news there and Democrats say that to extend the cuts to the richest Americans would add $700 billion to the deficit over the next decade. The Republicans counter that and say that raising taxes would put a kink in the nation’s economic recovery.

Keeping the cuts in effect for the nation’s wealthiest is supposed to create jobs. The taxes have been low for years now and corporate profits have been on the rise but there haven’t been any jobs created. I don’t know why it will be different this time. I also don’t know how the lost revenue will be replaced.

Arguments go on and on and on and there are still Americans without health insurance, Americans without enough food to eat and Americans without jobs. Sadly, business as usual.

    Very sad, but true.
