The Voice of the Adversary: SEIU and the Debt Ceiling

leave a comment »


Sometimes, not very often, though, I will read the e-mails that I get from the Lib-Crat opposition to hear the kinds of spin that they put on.  Today, I got an e-mail today from the SEIU with the following silliness:

The New York Times reported on a debt ceiling deal that would make deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security benefits without asking for an ounce of sacrifice from corporations and millionaires.

The bill would add millions to the unemployment rolls and deny medical care to the most vulnerable among us – including many of the people SEIU members care for on a daily basis.

Once again, lib-crats go after the wealthy as their solution, thinking that the more you make, the more you should have to be taxed.  Thing is, the rich pay more taxes than anyone else.  The top 1% of wage earners pay nearly 40% of all the taxes in this country.  The top 25% pay about 86%.  The top 50% pay 97%.

Sadly, though, the greatest majority of those on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are in the bottom 50%. So, basically this is wealth transfer, plain and simple.

So, basically Mary Kay Henry is telling all the SEIU drones to flood the Congress with phone calls to “save the entitlement programs” keeping the rich to pay for them with no return on their money.  Just like SEIU to play the class warfare card.  But then, they are a labor union; it’s what they do.

Even if we took all the money from the rich, we couldn’t save these programs, that’s why they need to be restructured to be financially solvent. But Mary Kay doesn’t get it. In general, the Dems aren’t getting it.

Read the IRS Tax Data – it’s not that tough a read either.
