The Antithesis of Robin Hood

In another startling display of utter contempt for working people, George Bush has suspended the Davis-Bacon law that requires contractors to pay the "prevailing wage" on construction projects.

So the people that are working really hard to rebuild their lives and their communities are gonna get the shaft. And George Bush and his cronies at Halliburton and Friends are gonna be the ones that get to keep the majority of those billions that Congress approved for reconstruction on the Gulf Coast.

In George Bush's America, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, and hurricane Katrina is quite an opportunity to take another billion or two from the poor and give it to the rich.

Here's a diagram for those of you that are still confused.

Ricky has a swell post about this too.
