Re: Extending Middle Class Tax Cuts

Yemaya ·
For me its not about tax cuts, and that is a non-issue. What ticks me off is that our tax dollars are not being used to raise our level of living, but rather to line the pockets of officials from the White House to the State house and Governor's mansion. What about our taxes going up in the state while services are being cut???? That needs to be addressed.

Unfortunately the only way to fight back is to Vote. This is going to continue until Americans stand up and take their country back from the clutches of corporate greed and their political puppet politicians. Republicans are not going to stop until they turn this country into a bleak Dicken's novel, where the 98% are the peasants at each other's throats for any crumb the 1% has even a whim to throw at them.
