12. The link says that they are at best the same as Clinton's rates.

I am suspicious of that article because that is the first time I have heard it said that Obama has achieved rates, passed rates on the rich that are as high as those Clinton had.

What about the capital gains taxes. Has Obama raised those on the rich?

And what about taxing Wall Street bonuses? Obama is not taxing carried interest or those bonuses, is he?

Obama is not closing the loopholes that need to be closed. A number of corporations pay no taxes. I do not know. Does Obama's budget close their loopholes?

If we are imposing taxes as high as they were under Clinton, then we should not be cutting Social Security, veterans' benefits and other programs with the chained CPI. It really should not be necessary.

We need to close bases overseas. We have a lot of bases we really do not need in this digital age.
