I just can't believe the insanity our gov't representatives are discussing. When the people of a nation are suffering, you DO NOT attempt to take more money from them. Economics 101 folks! Our gov't will not and can not drive economic growth and if taxes are raised, the current crisis will deepen and lengthen. I hope the people of this country get angry enough to revolt against such decisions and just say, "Hell no!" We have got to find a way to express our unequivical stance against MORE TAXES. We need to MAKE those in Washington (and in our states) hear us loud & clear, "We are not willing to have our taxes raised" to make "Your idea" of gov't work. We don't want our gov't to get bigger and we don't want to give you more of our money to waste. This is OUR country, not theirs. The anger is building folks, I guarantee it!
