What dumb Republican voters support
An article in today's NY Times entitled "Economists See Limited Gains in G.O.P. Plan" lists the priorities of the GOP if they take control of the House and Senate. In brief: '...The list includes measures to approve the Keystone XL pipeline; expand offshore oil drilling; block federal regulation of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”; and open national forests to timber companies. Also making the cut were more parochial measures, like water projects in central Oregon and in California’s San Joaquin Valley, and rules allowing business owners to record phone calls or meetings with federal regulators.'
So America's republican voters are essentially supporting destroying their clean air and water through fracking, polluting the oceans by offshore oil drilling, and destroying forests. What is not listed are such GOP priorities as denying women equal pay, destroying public education, lowering taxes for the rich and corporations, denying women adequate healthcare along with the rest of America, continuing to allow the outsourcing of jobs, destroying the minimum wage, Social Security, Medicare, and continuing discrimination against gays and minorities.
So the next time you talk to a republican ask him what it will be like to live in his polluted, racist, corrupt, and bankrupt America.
