1. It's the ONLY way we're ever going to get any cuts in spending. 2. If taxes are raised on one class of citizens, they should be raised on ALL. Perhaps THEN people will gripe and bitch.. when THEIR taxes go up... not just say, "It's OK that one class of citizen is hosed so long as it's not me". We need half of the country to get PISSED... to kill the Communist/Obama cancer... we need taxes raised ENOUGH... on EVERYBODY... to get citizens riled up enough to march on Washington and toss the Communists out on their collective butts!!
