Dems Calling for Tax Breaks for All - Page 2
Well, that's all middle class. So how come they ask that the tax breaks stay in effect for everyone (meaning the rich) but not mention that in the letter? That's because they can't. If they came right out and said, "our rich friends want tax breaks too, or they won't put bundles of cash in our pockets" they'd get publicly flogged. Instead they put out a confusing message that goes in line with what the President wants to do, but not what they want to do.
This is how they'll get the backing of other House Democrats, cross lines and get some of the Republicans behind them and actually raise attention to their little letter. This highlights a huge problem with the way the House is run: by the amount of money being stuffed in pockets. It also shows that no matter what they want to convince themselves of, all politicians are the same regardless of their party. Greed, greed & more greed.
