TAXES: End cuts for millionaires

| December 1, 2010 9:00 PM

It is time to end bailouts for the millionaires. They received tax cuts during the Bush years because there was a budget surplus from the Clinton years. Due to Bush starting two wars and not funding them the budget surplus is gone. And we know the ol' excuse that tax cuts to the rich create jobs isn't holding water anymore. These tax cuts are still with us and where are the jobs that they have created?

Hint... Look south of the border and maybe east to India and China. That is where the rich have invested $2 trillion since 1999. Now is the time for Congress to act on this. Call your rep and senator and express your opinion.

Democracy begins with you!
