"So when are the media going to start telling the people what is really going on? The Republicans are practicing "Welfare for the Wealthy" at a cost that will increase the national debt astronomically! Then after the government is bankrupt, they can say that "entitlements" to the poor and middle class is the cause.

I was furious when the media did not examine the reasons for the war in Iraq before we attacked, and I am furious that they are sitting on their butts again! The "Watchdog of Democracy" is again sleeping on the job!"
