This Is What Democracy Looks LikePosted: November 18, 2012
The 2012 campaign is the most expensive in American history, with $3 billion funneled into the presidential contest, $1 billion for each of the candidates and another $1 billion from political action committees funded by the super-rich, largely for Romney. Another $3 billion has been spent on contests for 33 US Senate seats, 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and numerous state and local government offices.
No matter what party wins this election we will see an increased attack on the standard of living for working class people. The elite class that paid for this election will be having its experts examine cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other programs beneficial to the masses while increasing the military budget for new exploits in the Far East and the Middle East.
The working class did not cause the financial problems resulting from the greedy speculation of the Wall Street crowd. The working class should not have to pay for it.
