Today the Democratic and Republican politicians are screaming about the government’s budget deficit even after taking trillions of dollars out of the public treasury and turning it over to the Wall Street bankers and Pentagon arms merchants, year after year after year.
Yet more, the Republicans and Democrats have already made it crystal clear that they will continue to use the deficit as their excuse for slashing social investments in health care, education, income-support for the unemployed and poverty stricken, public housing, etc.
The problem was and remains the political will – the class interests – of the government. The bi-partisan program of the Democrats and Republicans is to put everything at the disposal of the monopolies. The government uses its power to tax and spend to redistribute our country’s wealth even more in favor of the billionaires and the corporations.
