Causes are well known
Republican House Speaker John Boehner wants to know the cause of the requirement for a debt-ceiling increase. The causes are well known: outsourcing of American jobs and manufacturing, accumulation of wealth with the top 1 percent, tax cuts for the wealthy so that the wealth at the top is not fairly taxed, fighting two unfunded wars after 9-11, offshore sheltering of corporate wealth, increasing veteran pensions, financial meltdown from the housing bubble, the result in large part from poorly regulated banks, and failure to tax stock market transactions.
Please share these with U.S. Rep. Boehner so that he can get on with running the government in a responsible fashion.
