It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
What about not trying to spend ourself out of crisis. We did the same in 2001, and is one of the main reasons, the crisis turned so bad, because it inflated the bouble.
What tax cuts for the wealthy? Bush tax cuts that got extended was a tax cut to everyone, and was not extended in 2009. Most of the tax cuts in the stimlus were given to the middle class, not the rich.
American left should focus more on fixing the economy, creating a system that can't be corrupted and creating a system where people aren't left behind. Blaming the 1% will not improve the standard of living of the 99%. Taxing them so much that they or their money leave the US won't help either.

But my question to you. Do you think America would work, if you scared all the rich people away? Or their money? You can try to force them to invest in America. There has been countries attempting to work against market forces. Venezuela is a good example. Would you live in Venezuela?
Also, no country with a welfare state, only tax the rich, and not the middle class. What makes you think America is so different?
