When you hear that the current Democratic administration and congress accomplished little in the twenty two months since the election of President Obama, rest assured it is misinformation with the intent to slow down are reverse substantive accomplishments. Let me be clear, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives, and Harry Reid’s Senate has accomplished more substantively in 18 months than most presidents have accomplished in 8 full years sans Franklin D Roosevelt.
What has the Right so distraught is that these accomplishments were mostly middle class and consumer centric. By expansion, this means that the top 2% will ever so slightly be required to be more responsible for carrying their relative weight given what the middle class has afforded them.
After all, it is the middle and lower classes that fight the wars to maintain the freedom and open seas for the commerce that enrich. It is the middle class that consumes the services and goods for which they profit the most. It is the middle class that have mostly created the product and services for which many of the wealthy have only provided capital without work, sweat, or blood equity.
Many of the Liberal Wealthy has acknowledged this (e.g., Ted Turner, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, etc.) and are reinvesting their wealth back into the society and the world that have rewarded them. Many of the wealthy however are under the false belief that they are innately entitled to the wealth without realizing that were it not for the defect in capitalism that favors capital appreciation over work and favorable taxation of capital their wealth disparity would not be as pronounced.
It is imperative that the middle class be vigilant. The middle class must not allow the recent election of an incompetent Republican House of Representatives to derail the positive achievements thus far. There is a lot left to be done.
