The midterm election was won by misinforming Americans as to the genesis of our economic problems as well as to necessary solutions that should be undertaken. Contrary to what is reported by the mainstream media the Tea Party movement was neither a grass root movement nor an honest display of anger on the President’s policies. Instead it is a well-orchestrated and well-funded creation by the Koch billionaire family, other very wealthy interests, plutocrats, and oligarchs.
Our deficit going forward is structural in nature and as such will require a complete rearrangement of the budget sooner than later to prevent a bond crisis that run the risk of forcing draconian cuts across the board. The wealthy needed puppets that would do their bidding as well as media outlets to create narratives that while false, sound plausible.
In that light Americans got FoxNews, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and hocked economists in the Right Wing echo chamber lying to Americans about tax cuts to the wealthy generating more jobs and lying to Americans that repealing tax cuts on those making more than $250,000 would affect mostly small business. The main stream media then and now continues to allow those fallacies to go mostly unchallenged even as ample evidence from the Clinton era and other presidencies are there to refute them
If the Democrats are to live up to their core values, they would force the Republican’s hand and only pass a middleclass tax cut. If it is to die, let it die at the hands of the Republicans and continue a media blitz continuously for the next two years showing the Republicans holding the middleclass and budget deficit, and the fiscal security of the country hostage in order to transfer wealth to the rich. American cannot afford to give $700 billion dollars to the wealthy who are likely to invest it anywhere but America as they’ve been doing. After all, the current tax rate has not generated any jobs.
