Then there’s the problem of the top income earners having in many cases a lower tax rate than wage-earning people, as billionaire Warren Buffet has explained, urging Congress to raise his taxes. He flatly states how “these [extraordinary tax-breaks] and other blessings are showered upon us by legislators in Washington who feel compelled to protect us, much as if we were spotted owls or some other endangered species. It’s nice to have friends in high places.”
Now, why exactly do legislators in Washington coddle the rich? Take a walk around Capitol Hill some day, and maybe you’ll see why.
What you’ve read above is just a smattering of thoughts I could jot down. I’ll add more to this list when I have more time. But folks, please, do some research on how the sausage is actually made in Washington before you swallow the bait of the “critics” and turn against your own allies, taking time and energy to go out and fight for the people’s interests — your interests.
