    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?”

    It isn’t because you do not think for yourself, and everything has to be either all good, or all bad, so don’t acknowledge the good when I’m supposed to cry foul.

    They're both about power.
