Well, that is the last straw. President Obama has made an unconscionable deal with the Republicans by supporting the extension of ALL of the Bush tax cuts, that will finish the job of "starving the beast" once and for all. Although the support for the original tax cuts derived from there being a budget surplus, that is obviously no longer the case. We can't afford to continue this drain on the Treasury, but since the Republicans know how to blackmail this Administration, that is what will come to pass.
Why does Mr. Obama always give away the store before negotiations even begin?
Why does Mr. Obama think that the rich need such a hand-out?
All of the polls state that the majority would prefer that ALL the tax cuts expire, rather than extend this give-away to the rich, even though it would mean these mostly lower-to-middle class folks (including me) would also have to give up their tax cuts. Who are the real patriots? Who really cares about the future of this country?
I am done with modern "Democrats" if all it means is lip-service to the middle class and poor, while the Republicans get everything they want, and BOTH parties are in place only to serve the wealthy and the transnational (AKA: unAmerican) corporations.
Unsubscribe me, now, in all meanings of the word.
I mourn for my country, and I regret my previous enthusiastic support for President Obama's candidacy. The only thing I have learned is that I must never again trust anything ANY politician says, ever. I deeply regret my naiveté.
