Keep Bill Gates’ tax break

And also Warren Buffett’s. They are only worth more than $55 billion each (that’s $55,000,000,000)!

Plus that billionaire that owns Facebook and the dozens of other billionaires. They all get several million dollars each in Bush tax cuts.

How about the thousands of multi-millionaires?

They need to keep their tax cuts too! Otherwise, they will be going to Goodwill food banks.

Seriously, President Obama wants to restore the Clinton-era tax rates (remember the surpluses) to families that make over a quarter of a million dollars a year (I make less than that … I make a lot less than that).

Those making under $250,000 will get a tax reduction (yea for me). Gates and Buffett support this. I find it hard to understand why there are so many of my fellow middle class voters who continue to support making the rich even richer, making the divide between the rich and the rest of us even wider.

If President Obama’s plan goes into effect don’t worry. I believe those who make over $250,000 will continue to do just fine.
