Dear Readers, Don't forget to read about this inspirational American who is in dire need of voices to help her stay in her home.
Meanwhile, in DC . . . .
A recent email from the Democratic Party reveals more stupidity, or at least more intention to deceive. In the email, it states:
"In case you missed it -- yesterday Congress voted on a bill that gave them two simple choices:
A) Let President Obama's payroll tax cut expire, raising a typical family's taxes by more than $1,000 next year, or
B) Extend and expand the tax cut, helping 160 million people and letting that same family keep $1,500. Click here to find out what it does for you.
The payroll tax cut would be paid for by requiring millionaires and billionaires to pay a little more. But some in Congress think millionaires and billionaires should get to keep paying the already-low rate they get, thanks to the Bush tax cuts.
This one isn't complicated. And for a party whose leaders and candidates have pledged not to support any tax hike ever, taking money out of the pockets of middle-class families should have been unacceptable.
But almost every Republican in the Senate went with option A -- blocking President Obama's proposal, and refusing to make the wealthiest among us contribute their fair share to help struggling families and strengthen the economy."
But this is not how to make the "wealthiest among us contribute their fair share." The way to do that, as many Republicans have pointed out, is to close loopholes. Even Obama fawner Warren Buffet proudly announced he was paying less taxes than his secretary. If those "loopholes" in the tax code were closed in a way that did not hurt charities, then the wealthiest wouldn't be able to claim them. And then they would be paying the tax rate they should be. AND thus, Warren's secretary will be paying LESS taxes than he is.
Also, for those like Obama, who is a millionaire, as are many in government, there is a line on the tax form that says if you want to pay more, you can. But does Obama and Buffet ever use this. NOPE!!!!!!
So their criticism of those stupid bills Obama and the Democrats keep trying to shove down our throats will do nothing in the end. Except keep us from moving forward and out of this economic down cycle.
They truly have no concept of what they are doing. And they keep trying to tell us it is "the other guys' fault", like some sophomoric school kid trying not to get into trouble.
C'mon, Democrats and Mr. President. Stop trying to hoodwink and mislead the American public. There are enough nitwits out there who will always believe your rhetoric because they not only don't know any better, but they are the ones who want something for nothing and are not willing to work. Remember what Thomas Jefferson wrote so long ago.
“The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
AGree, disagree, it doesn't matter. Just as long as you start thinking for yourselves and stop listening the inane pandering rhetoric of these so-called leaders, and I will consider my job done. ANyway, this is just me, Thinking Out Loud.
Have a great day.
