INTERESTING US HEADLINE COMBO


GOP-Run Senate Kills Minimum Wage Increase

House passes bill to permanently reduce estate tax

Nice of the poor to help out the rich that way.

As a corollary:

U.S. Losing Its Middle-Class Neighborhoods

"Middle-class neighborhoods, long regarded as incubators for the American dream, are losing ground in cities across the country, shrinking at more than twice the rate of the middle class itself. In their place, poor and rich neighborhoods are both on the rise, as cities and suburbs have become increasingly segregated by income..."

Meanwhile, in the dark corridors of democracy...

And from the Beeb: US bosses earn an average salary 262 times the average worker's.

Also, Warren Buffett calls for retention of the Estate Tax
"Permanently repealing estate taxes is a long-sought Republican goal." Wonder why.
How you gonna vote on that in November? An honest result would be about 100,000,000 against to 1000 or so in favor of repeal...

Isn't it just amazing that the GOP have no shame about this? It is bad enough that they think about doing such things, but then they do them and don't have the brains to hide it or feel shame! What, one wonders, are they? Oh, that's right! These are the folks Ann Coulter admires! Well, that explains it.

I have the feeling that Ann, Death's pin-up, is about to crack, just like they are.
