However the budget deficit and national debt it's not an excuse to eliminate the trillion$ in tax expenditure benefiting the ultra rich and corporations. For the ultra rich and corporations conservatives apply a different reasoning. For ultra rich and corporations conservatives excuse CONTINUING the waste. This time recession and unemployment are excuses but to continue the welfare for the ultra rich and corporations. Again, trillion$ in tax breaks even though it has been proved that tax cuts only generate 30 cents in economic activity for each dollar of tax cuts given. Meanwhile direct help to the poor and middle class generate $1.50 in economic activity per each dollar invested because the poor and middle class spent most of it right away generating sales, profits, jobs, etc.
The bottom line is that conservatives dont care about ordinary Americans. Conservatives leaders are really puppets and agents of billionaires and corporations, inserted into the political saystem to watch and enhance their interests. These agents have managed, through a multi billionaire campaign of fear and prejudice, to brainwash millions of Americans into believing that acting against their own interests is in their best interest.
It's the con of all times and hopefully more and more people are finally getting the message.
