The 400 richest Americans used to pay  30% of their income on the average to Uncle Sam. Today, they pay 18% on the average. The main reason for the drop in their tax rate of some 40% is the tax cuts by George Bush and 100% republican control in 2003, taking the rate paid on dividends and capital gains down to 15%. Mitt Romney pays 13%.
Shockingly, the plan to raise the debt ceiling or lower it collects nothing from the wealthiest Americans to reduce our budget deficit. The Republican right wing holds the Obama White House hostage. It’s a sad day for the principle of sharing the pain equitably. Republicans only demand we take more from the needy, the elderly, schools, fire fighters, teachers, lay off public employees…
This mess would not be nearly as bad had we had all those taxes coming in over the last 10 years.

He's proposed cutting Medicare now for our elderly American citizens. Most of whom have paid into the system for most of their lives. Why? So he and his republican band of traitors can protect the Bush tax cuts for the top few percent. 

Vote these people out FFS!
