Big Profit Makers Hit Us Where Our Needs Are

Obama has been powerless to curb these violations of our interests — the general public. He inherited an economy on the edge of collapse, was blocked by Republican vetoes from major reforms. If the Tea Party Republicans now take over the country as well as our media we may see a total collapse of our outdated national mentality. It is no longer post WW2 when we had the upper hand as Europe rebuilt its shattered industries which it modernized. Suddenly our dated steel industry to use one example could no longer compete. And the Chinese have us trapped with debts and low paid labor that is taking our American jobs.

And what is worse is that tax payers are subsidizing such as the Petroleum industry as indicated below. Health care is on the same track with U.S. funded research and drug companies profits there from.

And so we are going down hill fast.



Petroleum industry profit-making is funded by US taxpayers – the gas companies profit by 300% and we pay to underwrite their research and development, overhead and expansion costs – then we pay at the gas pumps and we pay again, as diesel trucks fill up to transport goods then pass that cost along to us, too
