Open Forum: Cuts seem outrageously immoral

The Bush tax cuts to the rich in 2010 cost us $900 billion and now the Republicans want to give them another cut in taxes.

The budget-cutting Republicans in Congress like to talk about morality but they have a strange way of showing it. What kind of morality is it to cut programs for the needy among us and not mention subsidies for the oil industry who are making record profits, welfare subsidies to the beef industry, welfare subsidies for the tobacco industry, subsidies to the timber industry, subsidies to the ethanol industry, to name a few. To take funding from the elderly, disabled and the poor and give vast sums of money to people who neither need or deserve it seems outrageously immoral.
