With economic disparity already at astronomic levels due to the right wing economic policies of the last 30 years, the Republicans want to spread the gap between the wealthy and everyone else even farther by raising taxes on the working poor.
The working class already pays a disproportionately high rate when it comes to state & local taxes (which the right wing 53% meme ignores.) Yes, in fact, the “47%” pays plenty in taxes.
Taxes on the rich are already at historically low levels (the top tax rate was almost three times what it is today in the 1950s and unemployment was far lower) economic disparity is already at Great Depression era levels, and yet the Republicans want to cut taxes for the rich even lower and grow the gap between the rich and the poor even more? Pure insanity.
Meanwhile; Occupy Wallstreet – the protesters trying to bring sanity & fairness back to our economy – continues protesting for the 99% (including those foolish “53%” people who have been brainwashed into fighting against those they should be fighting with.)
