President Bush enriches the rich

Bush represents such an attack on our country it is difficult to focus on what is the worst – but it is his destruction of the U.S. Treasury by privatization, which is simply the process of giving taxpayers’ money to cronies for their support.

The military and most government functions have been privatized in Iraq, with Blackwater simply the most obvious catastrophe. Halliburton and Bechtel left Iraq with their billions for other U.S. feeding troughs before the sleeping American public discovered their treacheries.

No Child Left Behind is another attempt to implement vouchers by taking over “non-performing public schools” and eventually closing them so more taxpayer money can be funneled to private (religious) schools.

With a $10-trillion debt growing larger by the second, what wealthy person would not funnel contributions to Bush? Then he provides a tax cut, which he is trying to make permanent, to the wealthy, which costs the taxpayers $3.4 trillion more.

Bush represents the complete triumph of the top 1 percent of the wealthy over everyone else. Long live the Republican Party.
