37. Its a very ridiculous notion to believe you will be in the streets if the taxes
go to 15%... Do you remember how much of an actual difference it made? I, unfortunately, make about the same amt of money as I did under the Clinton years. By the time the tax breaks down over the entire year, its not all that much money.. Then at the tax filling time, I normally get money back.. I know $10.00 a week isn't going to break my bank. I say let them all expire and raise the minimum wage to a living wage. That would be actual help. Work on a Public Option for healthcare (creating a more affordable insurance option). Make it easier for workers to Unionize. Protect our country with real trade agreements that protect the people within its borders, not this crappy give-away that politicians continue doing for their corporate masters.

I remember the tax debate when Bush enacted them.. The rich would be helped a lot.. the Avg American wouldn't see that much of a difference.. There was a reason Cheney had to come out of his bunker to make the 51st vote and not one Democrat actually fillibustered. I don't think its that bad if the tax rates re-set.. We need to pay the credit card at somepoint. And its never as fun having to pay it off than to have spent it during the shopping spree.

If we actually start having to pay for things like wars and such, we wouldn't be so ignorant about how long and how much money we are wasting on them. The draft stopped the last debacle... This one will stop when people feel the actual pinch on their pockets.. Including the very wealthy. In fact, their taxes should be increasing to 50% or more to pay for their causes they urge the politicians to engage in.
