From the looks of things, It appears that the policies of the past ten years has had a horrific effect on the Middle Class. The US used to have a LARGE Middle Class and that Middle Class paid their taxes and supported the growth of the United States. Now, the Middle Class is almost totally trashed and the tax revenue is not there to pay the government bills. And yet, the Rapublican Party wants to reduce taxes on the upper class and the new rich who have benefitted from our very low tax rate. What do we need to do to correct this horrific mess and recreate a Middle Class again?
