Apparently the GOP is back to their “austerity” measures and the people of Joplin MO could suffer for it. Eric Cantor lead the charge. Compassionate soul that he is, Cantor feels that the people of Joplin deserve aide - but only if it means cutting back on OTHER government programs…. you know ….little things like unemployment insurance, medicare and social security. Nothing of any major importance for a country in the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Simple Solutions or Simplistic Nonsense?
Yes, Eric Cantor was in the news again touting his “kitchen table” economics and trying to apply it the devastation in Joplin MO. It really is very simple isn’t it? I mean - if you save $10k for a new car but your house is blown down by a Tornado - you use the $10k to rebuild your life, right? Sorry that does not fly.
