No doubt long-standing policies that encourage illiterates to bear illegitimate children need to addressed.

But that's more of a side issue to me. In the past two decades America's economy has been tilted heavily in favor of those who already hold the majority of the resources. And the middle class is left to bear an undo share of the burden. We face deeper long-term problems with the fundamental basis for our economy. It's eroding badly under the feet of the middle and working classes.

It's now all about the "investing class" and how America can promote more wealth for these few.

Absurd. Especially coming from those who not so very long ago were 110% behind Bush's theories of a unitary executive. That's the same Bush by the way who had MORE so-called "czars" (meaningless term made up by lazy media types) than Obama does.

That is typical (REPUBLICAN) garbage, is it surprizing? NO.
They've (republicans) already advocated overthrowing the Government in these city-data forums, they cannot stand to have a person of color lead our nation, some want him dead, if you can believe that.

Just as an FYI, that top 1% also has just about 30% of the wealth in this country. Why should they not pay 30% of the taxes? They, after all, can afford it. Unlike those middle class and low-income Americans who saw their median real household incomes DECLINE between 2000 and 2006...

Yes, that's just it. Watch when some of the food stamps and other welfare programs get cut back and it will be liberals rioting and trying to fight the government.

To liberals it's okay when the government goes against the working taxpaying middle class, the middle class is expected to just keep taking it and taking it, allowing the government to confiscate the wages of their hard work. We'll see how these love-the-government types are if the government starts cutting the money to them.

Actually, the infant (and infantile) Tea Party movement is disintegrating over internal personal bickering, organizational turf wars, policy differences, and issues of general mismanagement.

It wasn't the "liberals" who sank the US economy and promoted sending jobs to Red China and then borrowed a $trillion from them to pay for the tax cuts going to the wealthy.

It wasn't the "liberals" who deregulated Wall St, allowing them to float all these "derivatives" that sank the stock market.

It wasn't the "liberals" who ran up the biggest debt this nation has ever seen and left us with exactly nothing to show for all that spending. No new schools, no infrastructure improvements, no updated energy grid. Nothing. Spending record amounts of money while buying nothing is what's put us all behind the 8 ball.
