With the barrage of sound bites, talking points and rehearsed rhetoric, many times the message can actually be smothered by all the well-practiced words. With 9 days until the midterm elections November 2nd, it is of vital importance that all Americans know exactly what the Republican/Tea Party goals are, should they be successful in their quest to regain power. A quick look at their actual plans/agenda shows just how detrimental a GOP victory could be to 98% of Americans.
Here’s what the Republicans WILL DO…
this is rikyrah-Just look at the records of a majority of those running in the GOP, especially the Tea Partiers – believe them in what they said before….not what they’ve done when they were cleaned up, as much as they could by the GOP operatives…..believe them, because everything on this list has come out of the mouth of more than one GOP Candidate.
1) Abolish minimum wage laws which would force American workers to work for less pay
2) Block unemployment benefits forcing millions of Americans to literally starve
3) Slash Social Security benefits-even up to half of what they are now forcing senior citizens to literally starve
4) Gut Medicare funding
5) Gut Medicaid funding
6) Abolish Department of Education
7) Abolish Department of Energy
8) Abolish the Veteran’s Administration
9) Cut much state financial aid needed to avoid massive layoffs of teachers, police, fire, etc.
10) Cut of state aid would have a trickle down effect on local municipalities/suburbs-forcing them to do layoffs of police, fire, as well as close libraries, etc.
11) Will defund various categories of new heath care reform stripping millions of Americans of much needed access to quality health care
12) Will reverse aspects of financial reform to aid corporate/wall street in the continuation of unscrupulous practices against Americans
13) Will extend tax cuts for the richest 2% adding an additional $830 billion more in deficits
14) Will block funding for homeless veterans and homeless women
15) Will disregard the needs of middle America, minorities and the poor
16) Will work toward increased privatization of prisons
17) Will block lending programs/tax breaks for small businesses
18) Will paralyze the Obama administration with endless subpoenas and investigations in hopes of impeaching President Obama
19) Will literally shut down the government by defunding programs
20) Will repeal the 14th amendment which provides citizenship to all people born in the U.S.
21) Will kill cap and trade efforts
22) Will slash food stamp programs
23) Will roll back and repeal equal rights for gays
24) Will privatize Social Security
25) Will cut education spending along with college student aid
These are just 25 (and yes…there’s more) of the actual objectives of the GOP should they regain power. As all can see, their views, ideas and goals are extremely AGAINST 98% of Americans and would definitely lead our country down the road to destruction. Although the media is well aware of this list being the GOP agenda it has been very disturbing witnessing to what degree they have purposefully withheld these facts from We The People. Media manipulation is at an all time high and it will be up to us, through social media and every other way that we can, to share the truth…since the media won’t.
