  •  The tax issue hasn't made me Republican yet. (10+ / 0-)

    And yes, I benefited from the Bush tax cuts, and would benefit more if they were extended or increased. But we have record levels of inequality in this country and the GOP is asking us to vote for policies that push that trend even farther, with vast new tax breaks for the very wealthy. The middle class might get a few breaks, but the value of the breaks being proposed is terribly skewed towards the 1%.

    That doesn't make any sense to me. It is the kind of policy that worked fine for the French aristocracy, until their heads started coming off.

    We need to start pushing the trend the other way, and institute a more progressive tax system.
