Bread Today, Hunger Tomorrow

The News: Explaining why she voted for the communist party in Spain's general election, Gloria Perez chastised president Zapatero for not having done enough "to bring down the price of rents, control mortgage costs, help young people and get us workers better salaries.”

Perez expressed contempt for so-called "tax incentives" and Zapatero's promise of a 400-euro ($620) tax rebate. “That’s bread today, hunger tomorrow. We need reforms that will help us in the long term: better work contracts, better salaries, less inflation.”

The Note: Wouldn't it be nice if workers in the United States had a fraction of Perez's brain power? If they would the "Times" report it?
