Real Figures on the economy

Worth reading especially given the fear talk being used by the Republicans to slash and burn all the government programs benefiting the poor or the middle class. Their latest target is Social Security where they will cut those who administer the program therefore making it harder for the old, the disabled, and orphans to receive help even when it's promised.

Check out the chart and keep the figures in mind next time you hear a rightie say we have to do this to the poor for the economy's sake:

great information, Rain. Those GOPers have no shame whatsoever. I'm going to post a link on my blog about a BBC series chronicling the history of the neo-cons and the radical islamists....you'll see many familiar faces, and it provides a lot of historical information that still affects our country. Hope you can watch the series -- it's a 3 parter and well worth it. I'd love to read your take on it.

I know, but John Boehner and company keep reminding us that this is what the "American People" want! Who are we to go against our fellow citizens??
