Bush Robs the Future to Pay Wall Street Today

When you're in a hole, stop digging. Pretty basic advice, but somehow the Republicans missed out on it. Bush has taken our nation from record surpluses into staggering deficits, and today's newspaper reveals that he is going to borrow trillions of dollars to finance his plan to make Wall Street brokers even filthier rich.

Amazingly, all of this money that Bush plans to borrow will not even solve the fundamental problems with the Social Security program. In 2018, benefits paid under the plan will still exceed revenues paid in, and the trust fund will still run dry in 2042.

This economic boondoggle comes from the same president who promised to cut the deficit in half while making permanent his tax giveaway to the Country Club Republicans.

I don't know how to be polite about this. I feel compelled to point out that if you voted for Bush, you made possible this massive theft from future generations, and hastened the economic decline of a great nation. You should be ashamed of yourself.
