Placido Salazar psalazar9@satx.rr.com The Same - Remains THE SAME
The “perpetual struggle” of our people with making a living in low
-income homes will continue, regardless of ethnicity. Unfortunately, all the political promises
made to our people by both parties, including the “perpetual” promises (both
parties) for better healthcare and jobs to our Veterans who risked their health and their lives for our country, are forgotten soon after the election, only to be revived (the same old promises) just before the next election.
Right now, the whole country is coming down on Barack Obama’s healthcare plan,
which definitely has some problems
 –
 but where is the republican or tea party
healthcare plan that
 
would cover the working-class who cannot afford the astronomical cost of health insurance for their families
? Only someone who does
NOTHING
 
 –
 will be able to avoid criticism. Every politician, regardless of political party, needs to put the needs of the
people, ahead of their political aspirations, but we just don’t see that happening.
 Worst of all, not surprisingly, are the workers at the bottom of the spectrum, such as restaurant, construction laborers and farm workers who must take
no-wage- protection no-healthcare jobs,
to feed their families. Our political leaders come in almost daily contact with them, or with the fruit of their labor
 –
 but do you see any politician fighting for these long-suffering workers?
Yes, we have “numbers,” but
 
the “numbers” (including low
-income Veterans)
who cannot afford
 to put money which they bust their ass to earn,
into
politicians’ campaigns/pockets
, will continue to be ignored!!! If ever there was a time for every legislator, regardless of affiliation, to work together to help every American
 –
 the time is
NOW 
 
 , BUT we know that is not likely to happen. Republicans are not going to miss this golden opportunity to embarrass Obama, even if the poorest of the poorest will pay a heavier price.
