Election time

The House Republicans vote for a tax cut at a time when war spending is off the wall and the deficit is in the trillions. Our kids, their kids, and our great grandkids can look forward to paying for this stupidity. The representatives claim they are “stimulating” the economy and yet an agency of the government, the Federal Reserve, is raising interest rates to cool it off to prevent inflation. So why are they really pushing tax cuts? It may have something to do with the upcoming election in November. Yuh think? On the street this is called pandering. Where oh where are the true statespersons?
