Posted on 10/15/2012 11:45:25 AM PDT by ExxonPatrolUs
An oldie from way back in September 2012. Seems so long ago. I think the point of the song / video is that some kind of tax hikes are needed along with spending cuts to avoid the fiscal cliff. They call tax hikes broadening the base and eliminating loopholes. Both Romney and Obama want to tax the rich. It's just that Romney wants to cut spending. Watch for Obama calling out Romney on extreme spending cuts in the next debate. And think about the Boomers who will be taxed so they can pay for their own entitlements in the next few years when 40 percent of the labor force transitions to retirement. If your kids are not in college now, I would encourage them to get any degree asap!
Seems that I remember - to my regret - that Merle supported Obama in 2008.
