Supposedly 'Rebounding' Economy Doesn't Really Help Workers

RECEIVED Thu., Dec. 18, 2003

The news media are full of stories lately about how our economy is supposedly "rebounding." Unfortunately, this is only occurring in the service sector where adequate health insurance and other benefits have long been a sick joke. Since our so-called leaders are intent on placating multinational corporations at the expense of American workers, and since geedubya feels the need to liberate, at our expense, people who have never yet had the determination to liberate themselves, it is time for a major change. Throw the bums out of office! If the insanity that is the new U.S. economy is allowed to continue much longer, all formerly middle-class Americans will soon be selling cheap, bad food to each other to merely subsist.
