Republicans want to bully us into believing cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits and other dangerous budget cuts, such as those that would take food aid from hungry children, weaken education and food safety and let our bridges and roads crumble. These are the only things we should be talking about.
The most serious economic challenge facing America is the continuing jobs crisis, not the deficit or the national debt.
Our priorities should be creating jobs by investing in infrastructure and education, raising wages, reducing inequality and increasing economic security for working people. And we can do it by first ending tax giveaways for Wall Street and the richest two percent.
