China, the Check is in the Mail
President Obama has been speaking to the nation a lot lately on the state of affairs and paying the countries bills. I have come up with this simple solution: “minimum payment due”. But seriously folks the wealthy need to pay more period. If you have the means to pay for the extravagances that life has to offer, then you can afford to pay your fair share of taxes, and give opportunities to those hard working Ameri-"CANS" who have consistently ponied up until it hurts.
The fact that President Obama is sticking to his guns and has agreed with this simple fact has indeed gained points with me, even if it will be tough. I was unsure of how he would be as our leader dividing the party with Hillary Clinton and all, but underneath it all I do actually believe he has the people’s better interest at heart.
This all goes back to a previous article I’ve written about how this country is being attacked by the unacknowledged foe named greed. It has permeated and swept through just about everyone on this planet at one time or another in some way and continues to do so on a daily basis. Just look at the oil companies for instance. I mean does it really cost more today to get the same amounts of crude out of the ground as it did 20 years ago when gas prices were under a dollar per gallon? What about the pharmaceutical companies charging outrageous prices per pill on most medications? How about the tax breaks for the wealthy, why should they get to keep more if they make more. That’s backwards, they make more so it would seem they can afford to pay more?
The America our forefathers envisioned has been blurred beyond belief. Reagan’s “trickle down economics” was great for our parents wasn’t it; buy now pay later, let the kids worry about it. Well everybody we’re worried now. The threat of not actually receiving a social security disability check this month has gotten this household real worried, as we count on it to pay our bills, survive, maintain security, and a very modest way of life.Continued on the next page
