Well, the Republicans released their Pledge to America today, confident in the obvious fact that the press would use it as an excuse to ignore the great improvements in our health care payment system that went into effect today as a result of Obamacare.
I was looking forward to bringing you my report on the contents of this document as soon as I was able to find an editable copy. Well, guess what: I just read it, and it is nothing but a collection of more giveaways to the rich, disguised with unconscionable slatherings of jingoistic right wing blather, and a good sprinkle of lying smears about the Democrats. As anyone could have predicted, it is nothing but a hollow pretense, which does absolutely nothing real to deal with any of our country's real problems.Not surprising, that, since the country's main real problem is the Repubican party itself.
Like the last several of these meaningless documents that the Republicans have released (remember their "budget" from last year that had no numbers in it?) this worthless piece of trash will disappear without a trace in a week or two, but may serve its purpose in giving the mainstream press something else to deal with in the run up to the election, besides the real issues.
