After hearing the toxic rhetoric in the 2010 midterm congressional election campaign, it's more apparent than ever that some Republican politicians and their allies in right-wing media have set a goal to eliminate unemployment insurance, Medicare, food stamps, and the federally mandated minimum wage -- as well as to privatize Social Security.
It's ironic that the super-rich corporations and individuals who bankroll the Republican machine are the very same forces that caused the global economic meltdown by advocating reckless financial deregulation and billions of tax breaks for the nation's wealthiest citizens. But sadly, millions of frustrated voters, angry about obscenely high unemployment and a bad economy, were skillfully manipulated into voting against their own economic self-interest on Nov. 2nd.
