    Why don't the cut the TEMPORARY Bush Tax Cuts for the wealthiest Americans? Republicans have been trying to push the notion that the tax cuts were always intended to be made permanent. While that may be so behind Romney's closed doors, George W. Bush publicly promised the American people that his tax cuts would be a temporary weight on our national debt to stimulate the economy. So, why did they install them for ten years?

    They seem to be able to cut, but not where they themselves are effected. Their own pay and bennies need to be slashed, and when their pension comes around, it needs to be gutted. Just like they want every person in the country to live, they need to set the example. Their kids need to survive on dust mites. They expect your kids to do with less.
