Time to Address Fairness Issue
It’s time to act like responsible adults and address the issue of fiscal responsibility.
There must be a balance of revenue and cuts in order to make economic recovery successful. We know that growing the economy from the middle class out works, and that trickle down economics does not. We tried tax cuts to the well-off, and the rich did well, while the rest of the country suffered.
It’s time to ask those who have done well to give back to the nation that allowed them to so successfully pursue their dreams and aspirations.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with being rich and prosperous. In fact, it’s what we all want for ourselves and our families.
But there is something wrong when those who do well don’t contribute their fair share, when the disparity between rich and poor is at levels not seen since the turn of the century, when tax rates for the wealthy are at the lowest in 50 years, and our debt keeps climbing because one political faction refuses to agree to a single revenue increase.
It’s time to repeal the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans. Its time to do what’s right and fair and necessary.
