Letter to the Editor
Although Republicans have of late been making a lot of noise concerning the growing national debt, we liberals are concerned about it as well. That’s why the tax cuts for the rich need to expire. It’s not a tax increase, it’s taking away a tax cut for the rich that they never should have had in the first place. One of the main reasons we have this debt is because of giveaways to the rich. Just like the bank bailouts. That money went to the rich as well.
Now people are talking about extending those tax cuts saying things like it will raise taxes on the upper middle class. People making merely $200,000 a year. My heart bleeds for these people really! While the unemployed eats dog food because unemployment benefits were stalled for 2 months, we are not so concerned about people making over $200,000 having to pay their share? How will these people survive with $3700 less? I know – let’s find some cheaper dog food to feed the unemployed!
America has to get it’s priorities straight and if the Democrats want the people to turn out and vote for them they better start taking care of those making under $200,000 and not over $200,000. There’s more of us than there are of them and with the deficit growing and the economy collapsing I think it’s time to say no to the interests of the rich. No more high income tax cuts!
