Why is our nation going down the crapper?
Because no one cares.
I feel like I am in the twilight zone. Someone needs to make a YouTube video of the contrast between the horrendous destruction happening every day and the way the press reports it like a fascinating observation while sipping tea and in so many words, acting like Obama means well for us but who knows why things are getting worse? The reality is that Paul Revere needs to be riding his horse and shouting with urgency right now.
The middle class will not be saved by this tax and spend scheme. The middle class not only depends on the upper working class for jobs but also for contracts and supplies. If you add another 5 to 10 percent tax to to the upper class to all the other taxes, such as state, local, obamacare, permits, workers comp., payroll, etc., you are just reducing working capital for hiring, expansion and innovation. This tax will only prevent future job hires and create higher inflation. This does not, in anyway help the middle class. Couple the lack of substantial spending cuts and becomes American Suicide forced upon its people by a morally bankrupt criminal societal entity.
