The Democrats’ plan to keep control of government is to tell us they will improve the middle classes’ standard of living by taxing the rich to fund their frivolous spending, a plan the financial experts contend is not realistic.
The Democrats supplement their middle-class strategy with TV ads stating Republicans viciously kill people. The ads are unprecedented in American politics. In addition, they demand that Mitt Romney release his tax returns for multitude years while refusing transparency on their part.
I’m a middle-class senior who wanted to preserve my standard of living when Barack Obama took office almost four years ago. Now I can’t afford to gas my car, my house has lost about $100,000 in value, my health care is more expensive and in jeopardy, my investments that supplement my Social Security are negative, my grandchildren’s college education is now financially not viable, inflation is growing, and taxes and fees are increasing continually.
A tax-the-rich plan plus denigrating Republicans does not align with a solution to America’s economic chaos.
