Budget Debate Rant

My biggest issue with the budget debate in Congress is Boehner's insistance to cut what he terms "entitlements." People who pay into programs their whole lives will not collect. He insists that cutting this spending is just. Billionaires can keep billions over seas, pay next to none in taxes; corporations can get millions from the government (while paying nothing in taxes); but we are stuck attacking our most vulnerable. Sick people must suffer and die so the wealthy keep tax breaks. It isn't right. Why must we pay tribute to overlords who do not invest in America and destroy its environment?
