You call this Socialism?
Original post made by Roger, Country Fair, on Jul 15, 2009
Because of my own good money habits, and Obama's stimulus package, my family still has a roof over their heads. We have medical coverage and a cushion as well. If Bush were still in office, we would not have medical and would probably be homeless by now.
So, Obama decided to help out those that facing a long unemployment period (thanks to Bush & Co.) and to help ease the cost of medical. Is that such a terrible "socialist" move?
Conservatives by nature back BIG military and using the military!
Trillions have been spent overseas causing mass destruction and death. We rebuild what we destroy as well. Conservatives have no problem with that.
However, if we help out people who spent a lifetime paying taxes here in the U.S., the conservatives just loose it.
What kind of sense does this make if any?
