  1. Shoot, who cares about the Fat Cats, it is us Middle Classers that are taking the hits.

  2. Only republicans want to raise taxes on the middle class while giving tax cuts to the wealthy.

  3. All the extra money rich people made after the reagan/bush/bush tax cuts would pay off the national debt.

    The interest alone on the national debt is 500 billion dollars a year.

    Just tax the rich people to pay off the debt and the US government would be running a surplus.

    It is that simple. But then again,the rich people control this country and the politicians, so it will never happen.
