Kucinich on Supplemental: “Cash for Clunkers and Bunkers”

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today [June 9th] made the following statement against the war supplemental on the House floor:

“It is good that our Administration is reaching out to the Muslim world. It is bad to spend another $100 billion to keep wars going which will kill innocent Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“It is good that we try to create an incentive for people to buy efficient cars. It is bad that the car vouchers will not be expressly for the purchase of cars made in America. It is even worse that we tie such an incentive to a war funding bill. Cash for clunkers and bunkers in the same bill!

“Cash for more war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Cash to help China sell its cars to Americans. Meanwhile, back in the U.S. of A., factories and auto dealers are closing, people are losing their businesses, their jobs, their homes, their health care, their investments, their retirement security."

“Who are these people who keep coming up with these innovative ideas to keep wars going and to move jobs out of America? Who are these people?”

[Duchess Note - While all this has been going on since Sept 2008, its taking away the focus on "Goldman Sachs", who continue their "rape of America" with the aid of the Bush/Cheney, and now the Obama Regime.]
