39.6% is BULLSHIT.

RAISE THE CAPITAL GAINS TAX TO 45% and 60% on speculative trades.

Don’t give me any crap that the People had to give the Republicans cuts to social programs because they would otherwise hurt the economy so, so bad, because the economy is disproportionately in hands of the rich.

And if you think you have to give Republican Special Interests what they want because they really can hurt the People then all you’re doing is perpetuating and compounding a serious problem of these special interests’ wealth giving them way way to much control over our our government. To concede to their demands will solve nothing and make the future even worse! (not that a lot of Washington cares about the future anyway)

Hoy! Obama is not going to solve the country’s problem with our elected officials violating the good faith, spirit and intent of our founding fathers by playing within the box. I want to see some headlines that Obama went about violating his authority to straighten up republican traitors and other economic saboteurs. (that is unless of course he's not beholding to the same special interests)
