On 12/17/10, the day after supporting Democrat Obama's destruction of Social Security and continuation of tax cuts for the rich, the US Congress again joined Democrat Obama in attacking the workingclass by voting 341-48 for Obama's 5 Billion war bill without debate, all to make the rich richer.
We cannot have guns and butter and funding blood for oil wars guarantees cuts in social services for the workingclass. The other excuse for cuts sure to come in 2011 is that there will be no money to pay for our needs, thanks to Obama's support of Bush's tax cuts for the rich and his destruction of Social Security. The Social Security tax will not be restored when it expires in a year as it will be election time and no politician expects to get re-elected by raising taxes.

Johnson, E. B.
