Take Medicare Cuts off the Table!!

Well done, Robert Reich.  I concur whole heartedly.  Mr. Reich knows what he is talking about.  He was labor secretary during the Clinton administration.  During the Clinton administration  23.1 million jobs were created.  The George "unfunded" Bush years saw 3 million jobs created.  That's not a typo, 3 million jobs.  That's only 375,000 jobs a year for 8 years.  Wow, those unfunded Bush tax cuts really got the economy rolling.  Bush had the worst record on jobs EVER.  Source: the Wall Street Journal

"The current President Bush, once taking account how long he’s been in office, shows the worst track record for job creation since the government began keeping records." –Sudeep Reddy

The Bush tax cuts created the worst job environment ever.  Why do Republicans continue to lie stating that "cutting taxes, creates jobs"?  Where is the evidence?  We have very strong evidence over 8 years that they do NOT create jobs.  Let's raise revenues by raising taxes on the top 2% and make sure corporations pay their fair share of taxes.  No more corporate Welfare Queens, yeah, we're looking at you GE and Whirlpool.

Bernie Sanders top 10 list of corporate welfare Queens

Petition from People for the American Way:
"Dear Members of Congress,
Just one month after voting to extend billions of dollars in oil industry subsidies, and one week after it was reported that G.E. and other major corporations essentially paid no U.S. taxes due to loopholes and refunds, How can you consider an extremist proposal to pass the cost of corporate welfare and the burden of our deficit onto the elderly, the poor and the struggling middle-class?
REJECT Rep. Paul Ryan’s draconian plan to punish Americans in need. Leave Medicare alone and rein in corporate welfare."
Sign the petition telling Congress to Leave Medicare Alone
