Of course Congress wishes to raise taxes. You as educated citizens do not know what is good for you. It is much better for elite and corrupt members of Congress to dictate to you what you can and can't have. Shame on you for questioning this failed logic. Of course Mr. Obama stated during the campaign he was not going to raise taxes and of course now he wishes to raise them seeing that he has helped to bankrupt our government in 13 months. And naturally Congress with its negative approval ratings embraces more redistribution of wealth during a recession showing their economic illiteracy at every step. I could never imagine the economic debacle that is playing out today in Washington. I could never imagine the lack of leadership that we have in our economy today. I can also see why the Tea Party movement is growing in strength and is becoming a positive dynamic political force in the upcoming elections. We need change in Washington and we need it to start immediately. An elitist Congress coupled with an inexperienced President will help our recession continue for years. And no there is no way 95,000 new jobs will be created monthly, it is economic fantasy.
Economic reality will change the course of Congress in November.
