Glen Bakken: GOP agenda is obvious enough
July 27, 2011
To the Editor:
We don’t have to guess what the Republican agenda is.
Under their control, the House hasn’t passed a single bill that’s created new jobs. But they voted to kill Medicare, give tax breaks to the wealthy, cut funding for renewable energy and infringe on a woman’s right to choose.
Even conservative columnist David Brooks compared the Republican fanaticism to the Taliban in their refusal to raise taxes on corporate millionaires and billionaires. Just as the fanatic Taliban refuses to let girls go to school.
