I wonder what Laura thinks of Governor Rick Scott’s plan to drug test the unemployed and welfare recipients. Or how about the billions of dollars that have been cut to programs that benefit the poor and working poor? What about the elimination of collective bargaining rights? Obviously Laura has never looked at a federal budget deficit. What see fails to understand is that if we don’t raise taxes on the rich, we will never have a balanced budget. Ever since Ronald Reagan lowered the marginal taxes on the wealthy from 74% to 28%, we have had trillion dollar deficits, along with a bubble and bust economy. Historically, tax rates on the rich have been well over 70%.
Just a little piece of advice for you teabaggers out there: Don’t listen to a multimillionaire from Glastonbury Connecticut when she says don’t raise taxes on the rich. Lowered taxes on the rich equals suffering for everybody else.
