The Human Cost of Government Waste and Fraud

Dina Rasor, Truthout: "Who really suffers from fraudulent and wasteful spending? The bureaucracies get their money, the members of Congress get jobs in their districts and we put it on the federal credit card even though China owns a large portion of our debt. But there are programs that get cut or have less money because of Big Oil's and Big Weapons' wasteful and fraudulent spending. One of these areas is health research, something that the US excels at (versus health care), and we can lead the world in saving lives."

Democrats Unlikely to Repeal Tax Cuts for the Rich

David Lightman, McClatchy Newspapers: "Tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 expire at the end of this year.... However, a small but growing number of moderate Democrats are balking at boosting taxes on the rich. Many face electorates that recoil at the mention of any tax increase. Some represent areas that are loaded with wealthier taxpayers. Further, some incumbent senators who don't face voters this fall are reluctant to increase taxes on anyone while the economy remains sluggish.... Without their support, the push to raise rates on the rich probably will fail."
