So Many People Are Not Thinking

The Republicans in Congress seem bent on disassembling quality of life for the American middle class. I have an elderly parent. My husband and I are also trying to save for retirement while funding a college savings plan for our two young children. Yet, families are being increasingly squeezed and the most vulnerable among us sacrificed while the GOP keeps insisting on taxing the wealthy (including themselves - many are millionaires) at the lowest rate since Reagan was in office. Americans need to wake up to what I'm viewing as a downright conflict of interest.

In the meantime, I just saw a story on ABC News that billionaires like the Rockefellers are about to get hundreds of thousands of dollars - individually - in taxpayer farm subsidies. The GROSS disparities just do not end.
