What exactly is going on? Our government wants to put a graduated surtax on middle class individuals and corporations to help pay for the war in Afghanistan. This tax would be placed on the shoulders of those who earn between $30,000 and $150,000.
Wasn't everyone screaming about a 1% tax on the wealthiest Americans? A tax for those who earn $500,000 as an individual to $1,000,000 for married couples? A tax for health care. Something that might actually save lives.
The bill is named "Share the Sacrifice." I think the middle class has been asked to share it long enough. It's obvious what is important to this country: War and Wealth. In other words, the status quo.
Obama. Where are you? We need change. "The center does not hold," and, when I click my ruby slippers, home looks like a new and scary place to be.
