Republican leader says American dream under siege

WASHINGTON | Fri Oct 8, 2010 6:02am EDT

(Reuters) – The “American Dream” is under siege by an out-of-control federal government that doesn’t listen to its people, U.S. House of Representatives Republican Leader John Boehner said on Friday.

Boehner said Americans can make themselves heard by voting in the November 2 election to replace President Barack Obama’s Democrats in Congress with a new Republican majority.

“Americans have been crystal clear about what they want: more jobs, less spending and a more open Congress that respects and abides by the Constitution,” Boehner said in a speech prepared for delivery at a small manufacturing company in his congressional district in West Chester, Ohio.

“If those things are going to happen, then we need a new majority in Congress that will stand up to President Barack Obama and insist that he start listening to the people,” Boehner said.

With just weeks to go before Election Day, polls show Republicans appear headed toward taking control of the House and perhaps the Senate, largely because of voter anger about the weak U.S. economy.

    The GOP is correct EXCEPT they along with the Democrats are to blame.

    The gap between rich and poor in the U.S. is the widest on record, according to the latest data released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Median (mid- point) household income fell 2.9 percent nationwide, from $51,726 to $50,221. Corporations are reported to be sitting on $2 Trillion cash. Obama wants to extend tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush for households earning less than $250,000 and allow them to expire for those above but Republicans want to extend the cuts for all income groups and are pushing for corporate tax relief.
