Despite Gallup’s poll showing a massive surge of both unemployed and underemployed US workers yesterday, only thirty days after the 2012 main election, the Democrats have massively intensified their attack on both the private sector and its champions, the Republican Party.
The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has joined in with the class warfare coalition by both supporting and furthering President Obama’s unstated commitment to keeping the US deficit and spending levels as high as bureaucratically possible.
In a post, with a petition-like area to add a signature and an email address, the meme has viraled out heavily into the social media networks, while garnering over 57,000 likes in Facebook alone.
The headline of the post, while urging Liberals to stand with Obama, reads as follows:
Tell Boehner: Don’t Hold the Middle Class Hostage
Unfortunately for the GOP, while many ‘low information’ Democrats erroneously believe that increasing the tax rates on small business owners and others who make over $ 250,000 is taxing the wealthy, the establishment Republican’s have been unable to clearly articulate an effective opposition message.
House Speaker John Boehner, meanwhile, has continued to wage internecine warfare against the Conservative base of his party by purging certain of the more fiscally inclined members out of leadership positions. Boehner, in fact, appears to be deferentially retreating from Obama even while cannibalizing his party’s membership, according to victimized Conservative members.
The body of the DCCC petition posting states the following:
Add your name if you agree with President Obama that the rich should pay their fair share.
Republicans continue to stand behind Grover Norquist’s pledge against making the wealthiest few pay more so we can pay down the debt, protect tax cuts for the middle class and avoid the fiscal cliff.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi made it clear that “higher income people have to pay their fair share.” No other option is a real solution.
Help us reach 500,000 strong supporting President Obama’s plan to end Bush tax cuts for the rich.
The essence of the Republican messaging problem, which has consistently failed at countering what is a clearly misleading campaign by the Democrats, has formerly tried to join the question of raising taxes by placing ‘revenue on the table’ rather than proffering a more effective opposition message of substantially reducing a conceptually insane level of spending, virtually impossible to overcome by tax increases.
Despite Obama’s continuing campaign emphasis, the simple fact remains that incrementally increasing revenue levels will do nothing to repair the heavy damage already done to America’s bond rating, which fell to a AA status in 2011.
The tax increase on the supposed wealthy, that Obama has demanded, would ostensibly result in a revenue increase of only about $ 85 billion dollars per year, which is enough to run the entire US government for only about 8.5 days at the current spending level of $ 10 billion per day.
The problem, however, only worsens when we realize that $ 4 billion of the $ 10 billion spent by government daily is borrowed money and is further an unsustainable level of spending for any government to undertake permanently.
Obama has so far been successful at convincing about half of all Americans and most of the media, that the Republicans are blocking tax relief measures for the middle-class by their insistence on cutting taxes for the rich. However, the certain truth is that the Republicans simply want all of the tax cut extensions to go forward rather than focusing punishment on a specific minority of selected taxpayers, most of those being job creators.
Assuming the government fails to reach an agreement before the new year, tax levels will increase across the board for nearly every single America and a series of sequestration cuts will come into play, automatically lowering spending levels while raising revenue, which is referred to as the fiscal cliff crisis that has dominated the media since the 2012 election.
