Last month the Democratic leadership said that if they control Congress in 2019, they’ll rollback the tax cuts for the top income earners. Well, that leaves them open to the charge of increasing taxes on working classes earning less than 70K, or so. If these reports are accurate, anyway.
That’s rather odd as a campaign tactic to win back the disaffected working classes.
Instead of this garbled messaging they should try something quite novel: telling the truth for a change. That a major tax overhaul is necessary immediately and that includes DoD budgets, ending subsidies to the Oilygarchies, Big Pharma and a whole host of other steps to bring sensible fiscal policy back into the discussions.
FYI- A deep look into the building boondoggles going on in Guantanamo currently is a great education tool. The U.S. is spending $ millions per prisoner to house 41 supposed bad guys. They’re also building a $200 million dollar hospital for 50 or 60 people. Absolute insanity.
There’s a lot more to the Guantanamo debacle and $$$Billions are being skimmed to folks ( including Cuban exiles ) who hang out at Mar-A-Lago. Always be following the $$$.
