I understand what you are saying, Eucaly. But, raising the debt ceiling (without which we would have defaulted on our loan and been exactly where Bush wanted to put us; middle class fucked up and heading towards an other Great Depression even more than we are now) had NOTHING to do with taxing the Rich.
BOTH should have been done. Obama, as much as I want to trust in him, is too concerned about Boner and the other Republicans liking him and not wanting to be being seen as the "angry black man" to be aggressive enough to fix the problems. He needs to get MAD at Boner, the Tea Party, GWB and all the other fascists who have PUT IS IN THIS MESS!!!!
He needs to tell the rich, "Too fucking bad. Pay your taxes and shut up." Just put taxes where they were when Reagan was in office. Why not? He also needs to put high tariffs on things coming from China, fine companies for moving their "Operations" offshore so they don't have to pay taxes and for outsourcing jobs. Sadly, he isn't being strong enough of a leader to do this, due to his Daddy Issues. (He want big important men, like the Repubs in Congress to like him and it's getting in the way of him doing his job.)
I'm SO disappointed, I could cry. I have.
