I'll make the case in bullet points
- Pretty soon Congress will have doled out upwards of a trillion dollars of taxpayer money to bail-out Wall Street.
- John McCain plans hundreds of billions of dollars of taxcuts for the wealthiest Americans and corporations: the very same people who are going to be on the receiving end of that trillion dollars and who profited from the conditions that led to the financial mess in the first place.
- John McCain plans to couple his supply-side cuts for the mega-wealthy with severe spending cuts that would cut or cripple the programs that help and benefit the rest of the 99.9% of Americans.
How can anyone who is aware of this - excluding those who benefit from mortgaging the future of the American middle class and the working poor to subsidize the lifestyle of Richistan -possibly vote for John McCain?
