The odd thing about what is happening in America today is that all of us know what is happening - we don't like it -yet we do nothing about it. It's been going on for decades - but we workers are too busy trying to make a living to pay a lot of attention.
We are confused.
But it is simple.
When 400 indivuals have amassed more wealth than 50% of the American population as pointed out recently by Michael Moore, it is time for all Americans to say - enough is enough.
When politicians are telling us that seniors and children and women and the disadvantaged must bare the burdon of the greed and avarice that has consumed American ideals - it's time to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
In Wisconsin at a rally at which Moore spoke, at one point the crowd spontaneously shouted shame, shame, shame in reaction to the fact that 400 Americans have amassed more wealth than over 150 million americans!
America is not broke - American workers are broke - and the political system is broke.
The solution is a tax increase - everyone can kick in something - but in particular the wealthiest Americans can contribute significantly towards reducing the deficit.
For example take the percentage of overall take-backs to the total income of the wisconsin public workers who are willing to sacrifice and apply that percentage as a tax increase on the wealthiest Americans.
