Seems as those the Republicans are set on balking at requiring the most fortunate and well to do, to pay their fair share of the much needed tax revenue in this country. Truth be told, even Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have openly admitted that they do not pay enough taxes based on their income.
It appears that the obvious has been overshadowed by smoke and mirror tactics from the protecting Republican Party, in the age old assumption that wealthy Americans are basically the business people who provide the jobs for the middle class and should not be overly taxed to allow them to provide work for the entire country to grow and prosper.
While that use to be the case in general, it is much more obvious that those lurking in the background, the lobbyists, have finally created a stalemate between both American parties.
Lobbyists have deep financial pockets, provided from special interest groups that in turn buy the votes through politicians for outcomes that are unfavorable and unpopular to the vast majority of the American People.
America businesses are still sending far too much work abroad for lower costs and ignoring the simple fact that even if you can get it done for less you are forcing your own buying power to collapse at the same time by ignoring your working class.
The reality of what has evolved is the Republican Party is still trying to protect the wealthy, but the sad truth is the wealthy are not providing jobs to equal the needs of Americans for two reasons.
The first reason being, the wealthy are hording their fortunes and not allowing money flow to keep American families able to survive financially. Secondly, by not re-investing in American technologies and work here at home, they are allowing our competition from other countries to overtake our prosperity without the slightest resistance. Our own American corporate greed is our only enemy.
As long as we as Americans allow lobbyists to destroy our governmental structure as it was designed to be and operate, we can only expect things to get worse rather than better. Career politicians become more attached to lobbyists’ money as their tenures are extended and the virtual outcome is the American people are being represented through lobbyists by proxy.
The solution, get rid of lobbyists, regulate insurance companies, adopt a flat tax for all income levels, invest in jobs that will accelerate our self sufficiency in oil production, solar and wind power production for individual homeowners and businesses, and put America back on the path it was built on, American pride and prosperity through plentiful work and opportunities provided within our own borders. We are much smarter than we are acting as a country.
We should not look at our fiscal cliff as penalizing the wealthy, but as Americans regrouping in solidarity for the enrichment of our American values. Contact your political representatives and speak up or continue to see our country join the likes of Greece and other floundering countries.
There is nothing wrong with being wealthy, but pay your fair share to allow all to enjoy the American life, not burdened by our total financial debts alone.
This is only one voice that makes these observations publicly stated here, but those who read these words have an obligation to share a common view.
