Pres. Obama recently asked us to make our voices heard to our elected representatives. I agree with him. Everyone should call their elected representatives as soon as possible. Everyone should send their elected representatives email. We are at an impasse. Contact information for Senators can be found at www.Senate.gov. Contact information for representatives can be found at www.house.gov. Contact them today, tomorrow, Christmas, between Christmas and New Year's New Year's and after New Year's.
Below the fold you can see what I tell my elected representatives.
My message is simple. Any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and other social safety net programs such as food stamps will cause me to seriously consider whether or or not I will vote for a Democrat in the future. Tax rates on marginal income abpve 250 K should be restored to the Clinton era tax rates. Further, marginal tax rates on income above 500 K should be increased to 45% and finally marginal tax rates on income above $1 million should be increased to 50%. The cap should be removed from the payroll tax. There should be major cuts in defense spending including returning the troops from Afghanistan and areas where troops are not needed such as Germany and Japan. We do not need as many aircraft carrier fleets nor do we need as many submarines. Development on weapons systems such as advanced fighter aircraft should cease.
The above is my message. You of course should convey your own message whatever that may be. Only by letting our voices be heard can be impasse be broken!!
