So, here is the conundrum.
We are rich far beyond our needs. And we have just told the Nation that we are powerless in the face of those greedy Republicans. We have also come forward again, first with more comments about how we wish we could keep that tiny minority from continuing to have lower taxes, and have brought out the old saw Clinton to keep the rest of you happy.
We are the Obamas.
But what we have not yet done, we should do. If we feel so badly about how the taxes are not high enough, there is an answer. No matter what happens, give that excess to the US government.
Yes, Obama, you can do that without any need of any law. Just give it to the US government.
But of course, you will not. You have kept your millions, earned fair and square by just recounting your life, together with those investments we know nothing about and the free ride you and Michelle have had for several years so far. Your kids go to private school. Your dog is treated better than many of the citizens you govern and lord over.
And you will continue to lament about all of this, while appeasing those who believe quite fervently that the tax cut remains necessary. And guess what, perhaps it is for your group of multimillionaires. Oprah and others thank you.
But do us a favor. Stop using the rest of us as an excuse. We are tired of being blamed because we have less. We are tired of being your excuse.
We will not be your excuse any more.
We would willingly pay more taxes if anyone listened. But you will not. Instead, you will go to sleep at night with the lie that we all want those lower taxes.
Just like the rest of your presidency, just one big lie after another. And almost all in the name of those of us who have little, when really it actually for all of those like you with so much.
