89. I think that's what everyone here is saying.
The op is expressing that.

And by the way, we are still the richest nation in the world, some people just want it all for themselves and actually want people to pay them more. More from those who already can't cover costs.

But you knew that already, dincha?

Taxes need to be raised or we need to withdraw from both wars immediately. The wars have been draining the economy, they were started without funding. In fact Bush lowered taxes and started two wars. That is nuts. That is criminal. In more ways than one.
