The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington
Let Us Go Over The Fiscal Cliff And Start Anew
Almost 90% of the financial wealth in this country is owned by 10% of the population. Approximately 60% of all income in this country goes to the top 20%. Yet, politicians, the corporatocracy, and the wealthy would like middle class America to believe they just are not doing enough, they must pay more.
The middle class is tapped out. The wealthy by the share power of their capital and ownership of most politicians have pilfered them. There should be no cuts in Social Security, Medicare, or any other part of our social safety net. Our policies must be re-biased to the middle class. We must revisit “The People’s Budget”, a real middle class centric budget proposal.
Let us go over the cliff. While we show politicians and our plutocracy we will no longer be slaves to their backdoor dealings, let us make sure we take care of our neighbors that will lose their un-employment insurance and other cuts from the sequester. Let us go over the cliff and start anew.
