The Republican Party wants to balance the federal budget on the backs of working American families and low-income Social Security retirees while destroying organized labor. The Republicans don’t have plans to create jobs in the USA — their priorities lie with powerful special interests that spend millions in every election to defeat Democrats who stand for working Americans, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
The political debates we are hearing now are really different plans for America and its future.
The Republicans’ priorities are to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reforms and financial reforms and return to the George W. Bush era of lower taxes for the wealthiest Americans.
