Senate agrees to minimum wage increase, Republicans force even more tax cuts for business

Typical. The republican answer to everything: cut taxes for business. Particularly telling of the Republican mentality, the following quote:

"The Senate has recognized that our economy is interdependent," said Sen. Michael Enzi, R-Wyo. "One simply cannot claim credit to be helping workers at the same time that they're hurting the businesses that employ them."

Funny that for the past six years, when Mr. Enzi and his republican colleagues were in charge, I seem to recall massive tax cuts for businesses, repeatedly, and not a lot of help for their workers. But now, suddenly, we need to tie any help for workers to even MORE tax cuts for business. It's the only idea Republicans have left - cut taxes for business.

LSB: The Repubs are nothing if not consistent. Their rob-from-the-poor-give-to-the-rich plan has been working for years. Sure, they have to tell a few lies (WMDs, "family values," "we're supporting our troops"), but look what they've done for Halliburton, and that's got to count for something.

They didn't lie about WMDs. They just didn't tell us about the dirty bombs that have been exploding in Iraq for years.

Here is a scoop FOX News will never headline. Will anyone else in the MSM run with this story? WMD's FOUND IN IRAQ

"Did you know that U.S. troops have fired in combat 2,500 tons of radioactive bullets and shells during the past 16 years? Made from a material referred to as Depleted Uranium (DU), these kinetic penetrators are 99.8 percent Uranium 238, a radioactive emitter of Alpha radiation with a half-life of 4.5 billion years." – Montana Depleted Uranium Education Project

The United States government sent Dr. Doug Rokke to the Middle East during and after the first Gulf War. He was sent to investigate the effects and amounts of DU left there by our military. Upon returning home, Dr. Rokke became sick from the very substance he was sent to investigate.

We found the Weapons of Mass Destruction and Dirty Bombs in Iraq. They are ours! We have found the enemy and he is us. [more]
