Joe Conason reported on Patritoic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength -- a group if people who do or have in the past made a million dollars or more per year who regard their fortunes as just that -- fortunate -- and who don't feel they'll die without another hundred thousand smackers every year that they haven't missed at all for the last ten:
Dear Mr. President
We are writing to urge you to stand firm against those who would put politics ahead of their country.
For the fiscal health of our nation and the well-being of our fellow citizens, we ask that you allow tax cuts on incomes over $1,000,000 to expire at the end of this year as scheduled.
We make this request as loyal citizens who now or in the past earned an income of $1,000,000 per year or more.
We have done very well over the last several years. Now, during our nation’s moment of need, we are eager to do our fair share. We don’t need more tax cuts, and we understand that cutting our taxes will increase the deficit and the debt burden carried by other taxpayers. The country needs to meet its financial obligations in a just and responsible way.
Letting tax cuts for incomes over $1,000,000 expire, is an important step in that direction.
Note how they are addressing the letter to President Obama -- essentially asking him to get a spine. They know the Republicans are a lost cause.
