Apologies for channeling Sarah Palin. Just when I was thinking of starting a petition drive to fight the Bush Tax cuts for the wealthy I got this in my e-mail box:
Fight! Don’t Cave Campaign
Isn’t the new era of techno-activism fascinating? The tax cuts for the wealthy will add $7 trillion dollars to the deficit (that’s Trillion with a ‘T’) over the next 10 years. But the Republicans don’t care. They would rather refuse to give middle class Americans tax relief than to revert back to paying their fair share. As I stated previously, Republicans have no problem spending money we don’t have and then blaming Democrats as tax and spenders. This is blatent robbery and a real game of chicken. Sign the petition and tell President Obama not to flinch. We can do this.
