"Read My Lips" - Unemployment in Health Care Will Go Up

Although unemployment numbers are stubbornly stuck at 9 % plus, this disappointing figure will increase if Democrats cave by supporting cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.  Cutting these programs for the sake of a debt deal is a right wing extremist trick to see unemployment rise in advance of the 2012 elections. 

RWE-RWE's (right wing extremists) are not interested in doing what's right so long as they win in the next election cycle. 

Cutting programs for senior citizens, the poor and those who rely on their social security checks are no way to solve a money crisis when alternatives are quickly available.  Yes, increasing taxes on the rich seems like a solution where no pain is inflicted on anybody, even on those who absorb the tax increase.  After all, isn't the theory of capitalism based upon the concept of sharing wealth?

Moreover, for millions of people who work in health care and in human services sectors of our nation's economy - PALEEZE wake up! Cuts to Medicare and Medicaid will cause layoffs in the only sector of the economy where jobs are somewhat available!  In other words, unemployment will increase if a debt deal is made on the back of health care benefits.

Tax increases on the rich and super rich are the right thing to do.  Our US Congress needs to do what is right rather than stall about solutions that will hurt average people.  RWE-RWEs need to learn compassion rather than greed, leadership rather than obstructionism and compromise rather than regressive political posturing.
