To all politicians, both Democrats and Republicans: "Ya' killin' us ya' bums." By a terrible fluke of the system, many current office holders now have jobs they do not deserve. Neither Democrats nor Republicans are working for the people. What do these jerks really think that a $2,000 raise in taxes would mean to most people? Are they that stupid? I think not. The bid for an opinion is just posturing to make us think they care about Americans. Obama and his ilk really look down on people. Politicians stink and help no one but themselves to the public coffers.
