When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker initiated his attack on protective-bargaining rights, civil-service protections and local democracy on behalf of his masters, the Koch Brothers, the puppet governor never expected the fierce counter attack that sprang from the hearts and minds of American patriots.

Wall Street Mitt gets it wrong about a ton of things all the time. One of these is the auto bailout. Whether you agree with the bailout or not is immaterial. The majority of the public views the bailout as a success. Romney has been critical about the bailout again and his points on the issue are incorrect, too. No matter what anybody says, the bailout was a success, at least according to the majority of Americans, so Romney is once again on the wrong side of the issue. What a Wall Street Dumb Dumb!

Let’s get one thing right now. Tax cuts for the rich destroy jobs. I show how this is so in my book, The Rigged Game. Obama has decided to raise the taxes of the wealthy. That means they’ll have less income with which to pressure CEO’s to offshore middle class jobs; it means they’ll have less income to demand free trade treaties that redistribute income from the middle class to the affluent from their plutocrat politicians of both major political parties.
On the other hand, it is an election year. The majority of Americans want taxes on the wealthy to go up. So this could be another cynical election year ploy to make Obama appear like he wants to do something to ease the huge mal-distribution of income and wealth in favor the rich over the last thirty years. Let’s get one thing straight; Obama hasn’t done anything to reverse that trend. So there’s no reason to believe he’s serious about raising the taxes of the affluent.
