....I don't think so fella's!!!! California voters, most of whom are democrats, recently defeated an increase in state income tax by a 2 to 1 margin...those are DEMOCRATS people! If our federal gov't believes Americans are willing "to sacrifice"....they better get ready to be voted out of office...THAT my friends is a GUA-RAN-TEE ...no if's, and's or but's! The "Change" Americans want is not more gov't to raise the living standards for some. This is America and WE are responsible for raising ourselves to better living standards. And that folks is what it is and the ballot box is gonna be shakn' next election. There's a lot of good ideas out there, but asking Americans to pay more to make them reality is the wrong way to do it. here's a novel idea CUT SPENDING IN OTHER AREAS!:confused2: The early results are in and Americans overwhelmingly are NOT supporting socialistic-tax levels. "Yes we can" is quickly turning into "No, we won't!!"...and I'll admit, I voted for Obama.
