Sen. Joe Manchin is one of two senators refusing to approve the budget. Claiming it is too much money.
Nor does he like the $300 per child tax break credit for working Americans. Really? Even after President Joe Biden cut the budget in half. He thinks Americans don’t want to work, they only want welfare and the government to take care of them. I don’t believe this.
I think the people want similar benefits that are offered by power countries like Norway and Sweden. These countries offer working parents time off the first year to be with their child, three months of nanny service included. These countries invest in their children’s wellbeing. Mothers get to breast feed their kids giving them the benefits of first milk. Senator Manchin gets his income from the dirty coal miners, so why should he care about global warming? Sixty percent of the budget goes to the military complex.
We have many corporations making big money off war. Many millionaires were made from war. Try educating yourselves, read “War is a Racket” by Smedley Darlington Butler. Should be a required read in school.
Our fossil fuel industries have known about global warming since the 1970s. This is fact! In the 1950s our atmosphere had 21% oxygen in the atmosphere. Today it is 16% oxygen. Our oceans are becoming acidic and unable to support life as it did in the past.
Maybe if the corporations paid the same percentage in taxes as the poor people. I paid 28% of my wage in takes, my niece made three times what I made in wages and paid 66% in taxes. I think we should all be taxed the same. I loved John F. Kennedy and his speeches. My hero!
