In Washington right now, our elected officials are debating over a tax cut. Obama and Reid want a two month deal, Boehner wants a year long deal. The amount of the tax cut is approximately $40/week for people making $52,000 a year.
In a FoxNEWS survey, 19% of people said they would spend the $40 on gas to go to work. That wouldn't be too impressive, except for the percentage of people who said they won't be getting the money due to being unemployed.
So here's our idiots in DC, arguing over the length of a tax break that will actually send money out of our economy, straight into the coffers of OPEC. The main obstacle between the two parties? An oil pipeline that would create jobs and reduce our dependence on Middle East oil. Obama and Reid want nothing to do with it, because they are traitors.
Americans need to go to work on January 2, and change their W-2's to "exempt", so that there will be zero with holdings from their pay. Just do it for a month or two. When DC sees that there's no cash coming in, they'll be forced to listen to the people.
