Letter: Rich get richer while poor suffer

Rich get richer while poor suffer

Many of us continue to show our loyalty to America’s unions and workers by buying foreign autos. Thanks for sabotaging our economy! When you need our help — forget it.

Thanks for thinking of yourself only, and watch our great country fall apart.

That old, “I’ve got my job, now, get yours,” (this applies to health care and pay, as well) will not work. It’s selfish, greedy and even racist.

What we need is a kick-butt union society and, until that happens, there will never be an economic recovery for the “middle class.”

In Indianapolis, this goofy Republican government we have installed is raising user taxes on basketball, football and other games; anything to insure that the poor pay the whole bill. Anything but the rich. Heaven forbid those who make millions should pay more than a 70-year-old retiree.

Mark my word. Groceries and medicine will be next, just after the rich kill Social Security and Medicare — and your pensions. When it’s all gone, it’s gone. Better act now before it’s too late!

Hostess, who would rather go out of business than pay decent wages, is near selling the Twinkie franchise to a company that will hire a bunch of scab workers and stuff the pockets of a few owners and Wall Street. The recipients of this windfall will all get together and sing, “We love this country.” Personally, I hope they choke on it.

The Republican Party and Wall Street are still mad as hell about President Obama saving General Motors and the related 350,000 jobs. Whose side is Wall Street on? Whose side are the Republicans on?
