I was watching the news today and found some rather disturbing figures. It seems that the unemployment benefits for many in this country are going to expire JUST BEFORE Christmas. There's also talk about the tax cuts for the very rich being extended. Interestingly enough, both cost roughly the same. Extending the tax cuts on the wealthy will add to the deficit roughly the same amount as extending the unemployment benefits. Guess what by the way? Seems that the figures of the past 10 years revealed something interesting. Middle class and poor people have seen their incomes increase roughly 11 percent. The people who make over 1 mil/year? They saw their incomes go up 273 percent. Anyone else think that the "party of family values" has no heart?
