  •  here's why people think they're taxes are higher.. (8+ / 0-)

    cause their wages are stagnant or sliding backwards...cost of living (the basics, utilities, fuel, rent, insurance costs) climbs....most people have not crunched the numbers they just feel broke. like they are doing worse. so they resent paying sales taxes, property taxes (which went thru the roof with the bubble and never adjusted down) and as always, federal taxes.  Obama should use this --

    your taxes are lower than ever -- why do you feel so broke? because while the income of the richest people in this country has gone up 300 (or whatever) percent, yours has gone up less than 2 percent, while the cost of everything keeps climbing. let's tax those rick f**ks and  funnel that cash into job creation so you can get out of the hole you've been in for the last two decades....
    all the dems need to get on the page and say it simply -- just cause it's true, taxes, are down, will get dismissed because people are and feel BROKE and they know it's SOMEBODY'S fault. let's get the finger pointed in the right direction.

    Change is inevitable. Change for the better is a full-time job. -- Adlai E. Stevenson
