Make Them Pay

Bernie Sanders, perhaps one of the only rational remaining members of Congress in terms of our debt, has a great petition for the president that you can sign at this link.

We need to send a message to our Commander-in-Chief that we middle-classers are sick and tired of paying the tab for the orgy of excess by the top 2%.

We need to make sure they pay their fair share. There is indeed *something* trickling down... it's yellow but it isn't gold doubloons...

Totally reminds me of what Bill Maher said years ago about the trickle down theory - "Cut taxes for the rich and let them piss on the rest of us."

Love me some Bill Maher... thanks for stopping by, Riot. Hope you and Mr. K are well!

The debt would be a lot easier to pay off if we weren't perpetually puking money into pointless wars.
Jsayin.

Love Bill as well....trickle down has been proven NOT to work....don't they get it? And....Bernie is a national treasure!

Hi, PeaceLoveandSharpies. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment... I *totally* agree!

Hi, Chris. I am so glad Bernie is still in Congress... we lost a great progressive ally in Alan Grayson and I wonder if those folks down in FL's 8th might be having some buyers remorse with their overturn last fall?

Trickle Down economics is as oxmoronic as Ronald Reagan being a great leader. But hey, it's his policy.

So sick of everything.

So true, poietes, so true.
