One of the biggest problems we have today is a media that immediately cries "class warfare" whenever a politician points out what has been obvious all of the time- the economic problems that our nation is going through, though undoubtedly aided by three wars, has not been helped much by one tax cut after another to so-called "job creators" as we wait for them to actually create jobs.
The class warfare cry occured again last week when President Obama said it was time to cut the tax loopholes for billionaires and millionaires. Not only is it supposedly class warfare to suggest closing the loopholes at a time when programs that help people with far less money are on the chopping block, but it is enough to cause Republicans to walk away from deficit talks.
What kind of a country do we live in where it is class warfare to talk about eliminating ridiculous tax loopholes for the rich, but it is considered courageous to suggest major cuts to Medicare and Social Security?
In the accompanying video, today's weekly message, President Obama again makes the case for closing the tax loopholes, as well as making serious spending cuts.
