The Burden of Cognitive Dissonance

Media Girl’s Matsu, writing on who’s really burdening America:
The ironic thing is that those who are the most irate about spending on the poor have not connected that the money is running dry because they are spending on the rich.
Indeed. Nor have they connected that the policies enacted by this administration designed to slowly crush the middle class out of existence are creating more demand on the social services that exist as a safety net for those who have come by various circumstance to depend on them. Not taxing corporations and the very wealthy is directly linked to our social services being taxed by overuse. But we can’t blame those who need them; instead we must turn our attention to the policies that create the need.
