Lefties must defend Libertarians in this crisis, or Bernie Sanders might be nextSubmitted by RichardKanePA on Sun, 12/09/2012 - 03:36
Libertarians who want among other things a major cut in military spending are no longer involved in deciding budget issues.
A alternate impromptu budget committee of Libertarians and peace activists needed to present their own joint proposal to Congress including major cuts in military spending,
The entire Libertarian caucus had their committee seats taken away from them on the Budget and also the Finance Committee, Justin Amash claims it is because they want to cut the Defense Budget. He has more space on his Congressional blog calling for Defense cuts than Bernie Sanders does.
Each time their was a budget impassive Bernie Sanders screamed real loud about the unholy compromises, but in the end he in the past voted ’yes’.
I would like everyone to meet Walter Jones, who recently was kicked out of the Finance Committee. once a super hawk and the author of Freedom Fries. Who more recently worked with Dennis Kucinich to work for peace. Please read about Walter Jones in Antiwar.com,
Please watch Walter Jones endorsing Ron Paul for reelection last January,
What an underground House/Senate Budget Committee might agree on: A 50% reduction in military spending plus 10% more each month the war continues.
Internet prescriptions and encouraging medical tourism with a 12% (1% a month for a year) kick back to those having doctor required surgery overseas. Ending the blockade of Cuba so many can retire there instead of a few to Mexico where it is less safe to stretch their Social Security dollars.
Comments from retirees, see comment and following ones, and my comment that proceeded it,
Cuba may stop giving visitors free medical care, but most favored nation status and allowing Cubans to get high tech emergency care in the US in some kind of equal exchange could change that. Thus the world would be like it should be with different laws and values in different places supplementing each other.
Paul Ryan represents Michigan’s beef country. It is time to give up beef, maybe no beef or soda purchases with food stamps should be passed so Ryan can discover that food stamps haven’t been a drain,
In a week or two if comments are still active the following site dosent archive,
I hope others suggest what compromises can be made outside letting the Budget Committee dictate,
PS One can not email a Representative beside ones own, so I hope this idea gets forwarded to those who were purged.
Does anyone have a suggestion for contacting Casey in such a way as not to get generic emails back?
