LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Budget cuts take advantage of those already vulnerable

Republicans and the Tea Party are doing it in California; Republicans and are doing it in state-houses across the country; Republicans and the Tea Party are doing it at the federal level: pushing a flawed and failed anti-tax agenda.

Budget cuts are being loaded on the backs of the poor, elderly, students and vulnerable at state and the national levels. The Republican budget cuts target those who can least afford them while the GOP keeps giving tax breaks to corporations (GE) and the wealthy, the least vulnerable.

Double standard, hypocrisy, call it what you may, Republicans are sticking it to the workers and the middle class by couching their anti-tax chicanery in deceptive and flowery spin.

How much longer will Americans remain deaf, dumb and blind, and play victim to the anti-tax mockery and shell game that is being perpetrated on them by the GOP and Tea Party?
