  •  Let's vote on Wealth Tax Amendment (3+ / 0-)

    The GOP gets the Dems to agree to vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment.

    I ask, why doesn't President Obama spearhead a campaign for a graduated Wealth Tax Amendment, starting at 1% for households with net worth over 50M, to 8% annually for the likes of Buffet and Ellison.

    Say what you will about the GOP, but at least its passionate about what it believes in.

    When was the last time President Obama was passionate about any cause dear to the center-left.

    In 2004, I recall rabid conservatives canvassing door-to-door for their messiah, Bush.  

    How many Dems are so fired up about the 2012 election that they will do the same for President Obama?
