Keep the Pressure On

    That the executive and half the legislative branch were won is just the beginning. We have to keep pressure on those reluctant members of the House of Representatives to work with the President and the Senate.

    Obstructionism has not worked, in fact it has been detrimental to progress and damaging to the nation. We MUST keep continuous pressure on the few Republican and Tea Party members left in the house to reach across the isle and work toward a brighter future.

    Excuses that the "job creators" must not be taxed is simply false. If the so called "job creators" were really motivated by reduced taxes we'd be swimming in jobs. Just the opposite is true; they retain more of their wealth and refuse to hire any more workers. The net effect is enormous disparity between the working class and the so called "job creators."

    Since that has proven to be a false argument for motivation we must move ahead with higher tax rates for these so called "job creators."  We have much to pay for and those who benefited most from these huge expenditures should expect to pay for the privilege of wealth on the backs of dead soldiers disenfranchised citizens.

    The best way to accomplish this is to convince the House that they must move in that direction. Petitions, calls to their offices, and email's to the reluctant will go a long way toward accomplishing that goal. If we can keep this up continuously no Grover Norquist pledge can be expected to be honored.

    I am in complete and total agrrement with you statement.  Now is not the time to allow party difference disrupt our guaranteed way of life via the Constitution.  It's ok to disagree it's alright to dislike an ideal but not to the degree that it cripples honest Americans  from achieving a happy healthy lifestyle.  Without change there would have been George Washington and the Revolutionary War.  We would still be colonies governed by Great Britian.
