    collecting subsidies while sending the jobs overseas.  We get the bloated CEO's buying our politicians, we get them interfering with rational regulation of the environment and workplace, we get inundated with their reinforcement of social wedge issues to keep lower income whites in line, and we still see them offshore jobs.   I think there ought to be standards that recognize income as income,  come up with realistic rates and let the chips fall where they may.   If we end up a little poorer, but in control of our government, more egalitarian, less polluted, we might still be better off.

    •  we can change that (1+ / 0-)

      problem is we have to work within a certain framework.

      if Obama came out and said everything we have been saying, then the national press would have a field day.

      there is no debt crisis!  we are a rich nation.  the rich can and will pay more.

      they would rake him over the coals everyday and guide the public into believing Obama doesn't care/understand/fear the national debt problem.
