Austerity Leads To Poverty

Republican candidates insist the United States of America needs a conservative president and a conservative legislature if this nation is to become once again an economic powerhouse. The United Kingdom is led by Conservative David Cameron who has instituted just about every Republican idea in his nation including firing government employees, reducing aid to the poor and, of course, refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy. If you did, all would flee to countries like Andorra which do not tax the wealthy.

So, what are the results of Conservative government? The economy once again  grew smaller, unemployment increased and the wealthy are making more money than ever before. Critic Brendan Barker noted: “the grand austerity plan is failing to tackle the deficit, causing unemployment to spiral out of control, and is now dragging the country towards a recession.”

Oh, David Cameron is “very disappointed.”
