Lunchtime links: Wealthy Republican lawmakers want tax cuts; Americans want jobs
The Bush tax cuts, which will disproportionately benefit millionaire Washington DC lawmakers in relation to the rest of the nation’s population, are a low priority for Americans, even Republican Americans. Americans want jobs.
Here’s a chart on American adults’ political priorities, care of Jane Hamsher:
Health care stats: Fifty-nine million Americans went without health insurance coverage for at least part of 2010. Twenty-two percent of voting age Americans do not have health insurance. Only half of those live below the poverty level and 40 percent suffer from chronic illnesses.
Tancredo: Crazy? Yes. Likeable in person? Yes he is! A great communicator? Maybe.
Speaking of Tancredo, new polls show that Americans want immigration reform. (Voters to Congress: Forget the Bush tax cuts and reform the broken immigration system!)
Atheists are gearing up for the
Christmas holiday season, a gift they give each year to Fox News.
Act now, for only $10,000 you can buy a table for ten at the
Republican libertarian Independence Institute Founder’s Dinner, where old guys will drink too much and talk about freedom and Obamacare. Take photos! Please!
