    Yep, everything is going up. Gasoline. Fuel. Electricity. Food. Housing. Most goods and services.

    Yet, most worker salaries are NOT going up. Hmmm. Then where’s all that money going?

    Ah! That’s right! The wealthy who own everything saw their income and wealth go up 20-25% last year alone! So the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and taxes for the wealthy go down while they go up for the rest of us!

    And what is that noise Ihear – Tea Party right-wingers still trying to blame it on high taxes? Big government? Regulation? Unions? Entitlements? Welfare?

    Never has a more gullible bunch of sheep ever roamed this land as those who still can’t see the REAL problem in this country costing each and every one of us more and more each year: Greed from the upper class. Simple as that.

      Obozo has the highest wealth gap in US history. Liberal elites keep helping the rich while sticking it to the little guy.Liberals In Illinois are now resorting to fracking because they have the HIGHEST deficit in the country.Dem president, dem governor, and Illinois has been democrat for years.Somebody that would try to blame the right would have been dimmer than a Normandy student!
