I say doublespeak, because I just got done reading speaker Boehner’s memo concerning the Bush tax cuts. He hides behind facts that are flawed, he wants to be able to save 700 thousand jobs and the economy, is his statement. The truth is that the democrat budget included all Americans in tax cuts for the first 200 thousand person or 250 thousand family, and its only the taxes on higher than that figure that are to be raised. That means that only ‘large corporations’ and the very rich have to pay higher taxes. Sounds much different that way, doesn’t it?
What is scary, is that way too many Americans hear what the speaker and his party of (guarding one percenters) and believe it. It should be apparent to everyone that taxing the rich(they were at 93% highest during ww2 and 90% under Eisenhower, and were down to around 50% before Reagan. We need to reinstate the 50% top rate and also tax the corporations as they were once taxed and then bring back the regulations that prevented wall street and banks from a repeat of 2008, and the regulations that prevented the widespread outsourcing and to prevent corporations from paying the CEO’s 500 times what the employees made, and instead encouraged livable wages.
It can not be said enough that it’s the middle class that is the true job creator. Without livable wages there can be no thriving middle class, and thus no new jobs. We need to insert money into our economy from the bottom up.
What I find scary about the republican doublespeak, is how many people still say they will vote republican and yet as the polls show, they do not want to lose all the benefits they now enjoy and in fact do not want Obama care removed and they for sure in poll after poll do not want Medicare, social security or medicaid cut, yet still say they will vote for republican
As I have said before and will say again WE ARE THE NEW MEDIA AND ITS OUR SHARING AND COMMENTING AND SIGNING PETITIONS AND SHARING LINKS AND RESEARCHING THAT MAKES US THE NEW MEDIA
PEACE AND MAY HARMONY AND THE LIGHT OF LOVE BLESS YOUR DAY
