Yesterday, Congressman Earl Blumenauer voted for free trade agreements with South Korea and Panama. Earl pretty much looked at the knees of his corporate masters, turned around, pushed his shorts down, bent over and said, “Here it is oh mighty rich people.” Then they screwed the rest of us by using him like a cheap legislative prostitute. I hope he took a shower after he voted.
Currently, the USA rates 75th in the world in income equality. We’re down there with Uganda and several other third world dictatorships. Earl voted yesterday to drop us to somewhere around 80th in the world. Earl also voted to redistribute more income from working Americans to the rich, and he voted to depress the economy even more. This tells us something significant about Earl. He doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the non-rich. It also suggests another thing about Earl “Corporate Bitchboy” Blumenauer.
Since numerous studies show these trade agreements will destroy jobs, Earl isn’t really serious about President Obama’s jobs program.
Here’s another thing to take to the bank. Senator Ron Wyden and President Obama support the trade agreements. Their support strongly suggests that they, too, don’t support the Obama jobs bill.
This means Obama supports his jobs bill because he knows that it won’t pass the House of Representatives, and that means his jobs bill is just a cynical, despicable trick to drum up support from his fading base.
