Outrage of the day

It wasn't a great start to the day -- opening the AJC and reading that Georgia's lawmakers say they want to add yet another burden to those who can least afford it. Now they want to tax groceries. Even cat food went up 15 cents to 40 cents a can seemingly overnight, so there's no help in going there for sustenance.

Do they never learn that trickle-down economics just doesn't work? Or is it just a feudal mentality and they simply don't care? Dateline NBC had a real eye-opener the other night on out-of-work people in Ohio who are struggling just to find a place to sleep and to feed themselves. While Congressmen still fight tooth and nail to keep the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
