    Nothing stopping Congress from doing it right now

    Why don't they?

    Is the right wing seriously considering a political platform, of making the rich richer and the poor, poorer, during alleged times of War?

    Gentlemen, this is what it takes to achieve social objectives on a national basis:

    Seriously, why isn’t your post “HEY, WE GOT HIGHER TAXES ON THE RICH, DESPITE A GOP CONTROLLED FED GOVT, WHY ARENT MORE ON THE LEFT OK WITH THIS PLAN?”
