It’s about time. President Obama has forcefully stated that to tackle the debt, we must raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans and that he won’t balance the budget on the backs of senior citizens and the poor.
The Republicans, on cue, immediately cried, “class warfare.” Unfortunately they are right. However, it is the Republicans who practice class warfare against the middle class, Medicare recipients, teachers and firefighters.
It is the Republicans who slash funding to ensure the safety of the food we eat and the medicines we take.
And it is the Republicans who prevent a jobs plan that will put people back to work. It’s about time that Obama stood up and fought back.
