The “Buffet Tax”- 12/01/11
As war rages on in the house of Congress over what should have already been implemented as law, we should all keep clear focus on what’s the priority here. Jim Kuhnhenn of the Huffington Post reported back in September that Obama unveiled a new deficit reduction plan known as the “Buffet Tax” after billionaire playboy Warren Buffet, a plan Buffet himself endorsed! Republicans of course, will attempt to filibuster this into oblivion, or until they can unseat Obama at least, but how can you lobby to cut Medicare, but not tax the wealthiest of Americans, making well over $1 million dollars a year, who on average pay lower taxes than standard Middle-class working Americans?

This picture symbolizes of how the priorities of this country are extremely misaligned. While our government is spending billions of dollars on wars and bailouts for banks, they are making huge spending cuts on education across the US. Re-Post this picture if you agree that America’s priorities need to change!
