It’s game over. Our government has failed. It doesn’t work any more and there’s no sign that that will change. It’s time to revolt, time to have that class war. Anytime a Middle Class American mentions anything about all the advantages the rich share here in the US and the historically low tax rates they enjoy, Republicans cry “class warfare”. If that’s what they think this is, let’s show them what a class war really is, the rich against everyone else. That should make us about even. I’m tired of babysitting Republicans and they intellectually impaired followers. They’re not smart enough to govern, but they keep getting their way. Ending that must be our priority by any means necessary.

How about this for a novel idea, why not stop the insane spending/borrowing levels we’ve been on for the past few years!?!?!? Is that possible? Governement has gotten far too large and the money being spent now is insane. This childish tax rate conversation is not addressing the main problem: our incredible debt. Why is our campaigner in chief never talking about the debt?

This is laughable! In order to see the US Federal Government debt rise by only $4T over the next 10 years (only?!) $7-8T in deficit cutting would need to happen.

“largely because it would extend low tax rates for almost all Americans”, or largely because the govt spends too much.
