    It will begin to even out the tax breaks they have received over the last 3 decades.

    What loopholes are you talking about? Give us some examples.

    We haven't implemented any liberal tax policies yet. You have to look at the past policy of trickle down economics for our current jobless plight.

    The chicken **** payroll tax cut that gave people an extra $20- a week isn't a Liberal tax policy?

    Unfortunately, the current unemployment rate has nothing to do with taxes. it's more to do with a government that is killing jobs.

    How did an extra $20 bucks a week for the working class kill jobs???

    You are right, it is was the government practice of trickle down economics that killed jobs. By transferring so much wealth from the middle class to the millionaires and billionaires, the masses don't have enough money to be the type of consumers our economy depends on to prosper.

    That will have to change.

    So, how is that hope-n-change working for us? How many jobs have been lost under the Yes We Can regime?

    We are not in a Great depression are we? That's what happened the last time so much wealth was concentrated at the top. The correction will need to be the same thing we did after the great depression.
