    over the past ten years. Restoring the tax rate to what it was before the Bush tax breaks would mean that it will take ten years just to pay back what they've already syphoned away from the nation.
    The extra tax breaks for the wealthy have been invested in politicians to get an even larger share of the nation in the hands of a plutocracy that is strangling the nation's future.
