Americans should be focused on lowering the debt and helping the working class. Recently we gave the rich a huge tax cut and we established more jobs. Still though the line between the rich and middle class continues to grow farther apart and if that continues it will be a disaster for the middle class, for economy for the poor, for our cities. We raised income and have job growth but the working people are not getting richer. A deeper tax on the rich is a good thing for the debt and to stable our economy just right. These are people who can afford to pay such taxes. Look at it this way, should people be dying of poverty, fighting to keep there house, should we be worried over our debt crisis and fear to spend money on helping our schools, roads, buildings, infrastructure and are military just so the rich can buy a new penthouse or a few million dollar cars? They already received a cut, should we reward them with more while the rest suffer?
