12. In light of Durbin's comments recently....

..that's a good thing. I'm sure the bastages are going to play chicken up to the night before. No news there. But the President's administration had better stand firm on what is right for the poor and middle class in this country. The wealthy have had ALL the breaks in the last 30 years, and we've gone backward FAR ENOUGH! It's time to make it happen. I say 39.6%, or whatever the exact tenth is, is waaaaay too little - looking back at history. We have had two of the longest wars in our history, given tax breaks to the wealthy - as well as peanuts to the rest of us - and it's time to jack their rates back to where it should be..50%+. We argue over peanuts, when we should be taking the whole cake and leaving "them" a slice.

Wouldn't it be nice if President Obama stands firm, shows a spine, and reflects the will of the people!? I hope and believe he will. Time is going to tell. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to cave....not this time!!
