“Housing Bill” = CorpoRATe Welfare!
Well, the two parties of the apocalypse are at it AGAIN. They and their big business corpoRATeer buddies (you can’t spell corpoRATe without RAT!) have cooked up quite a stew. It includes the three basic food groups of the power elite:
WASTE, FRAUD, AND ABUSE!
Yes, another heapin’ helpin’ of corporate welfare! SONOFABUSH! This from the new york times:
Big Tax Breaks for Businesses in Housing Bill
WASHINGTON — The Senate proclaimed a fierce bipartisan resolve two weeks ago to help American homeowners in danger of foreclosure. But while a bill that senators approved last week would take modest steps toward that goal, it would also provide billions of dollars in tax breaks — for automakers, airlines, alternative energy producers and other struggling industries, as well as home builders.
The tax provisions of the Foreclosure Prevention Act, which consumer groups and labor leaders say amount to government handouts to big business, show how the credit crisis, while rattling the housing and financial markets, has created beneficiaries in the power corridors of Washington.
It also shows how legislation with a populist imperative offers a chance for lobbyists to press their clients’ interests.
Well, isn’t that SPECIAL! At a time when more and more of us are living like this:
As the foreclosure rate,
and EVERY OTHER DAMN COST SKYROCKETS!
The damn fools running OUR country (into the ground) seem to feel that this would be a good time to hand out sacks of cash to their buddies in big business! How do they intend to PAY for this? DEFICIT SPENDING!
What do the three stooges of the apocalypse have to say about this?
MOE (aka mugsy mcPain)
I support the troops and am a made man in labushanostra. I’m also the richest person in the senate!
LARRY (aka hillary dillary doo)
I support the troops and wave Baaa Baaa. mr. senator clinton and I have a history of owning stock in the kinds of companies that are getting the latest pork barrel handouts.
MOE (aka sweet talkin’ slim)
I have the audacity to hope that nobody catches on to the fact that I am just as in bed with the big business crooks as the other two stooges.
WTF!? How can YOU let these dirty thieves rob US OF OUR TAX DOLLARS? We have to RID OURSELVES OF THE TWO PARTIES OF THE APOCALYPSE AND BRING THEIR CORPORATE BUTT BUDDIES TO HEEL!
There is only one candidate for president that can save US!
The Telepathic Crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I wish to welcome The Pork Barrel Pot Pie to our little blog, it makes a tasty addition to the Peace Pie we’ve been hitting the stooges with! We are quite sure that the thieves in washingtOOn will be getting a face full of our new friend on a regular basis…
