Because they are not spending their money on payroll!!!
By Jack E. Lohman
At least not here, and they are getting away with it because both political parties are on the take from those very corporations. And the CEOs are taking the cash rather than distributing it to employees.
We are still politically diverted, fighting the little fires while the special interests are sending their money where it counts… to politicians. And it’s working.
And the Republicans in the debates???
Rule #1… act like adults. Save your barbs for Obama, who well deserves them.
Rule #2… fight the core problem, political corruption. It’s rampant on both sides, both at the state and federal level, and THAT is what’s killing our economy.
Like, balancing the budget by cutting BadgerCare???
Good move, Governor Walker!
Most certainly the politicians don’t want to increase revenues by raising taxes on corporations or the wealthy CEOs. So we’ve eliminated the jobs of the poor and are now attacking their health care!!! Makes all the sense in the world (Not!).
Were it not for the massive campaign contributions from the insurance industry, our politicians would do the right thing… implement a single-payer Medicare-for-all system. We’d use the administrative waste to provide health care to all, and at the same time save the nation $400 billion per year.
But that makes too much sense, and our politicians are not paid to make sense. They are paid (by the special interests) to keep the system broken.
2012 is the year that you and I must send a message…
… to vote against the status quo.
