It is not all Obama's fault. It takes 2 to fight. The Republicans refuse to let the rich pay some taxes. Obama seems wiling to negotiate but he is strong on having the super rich pay more. Things will be better next year.
"let the rich pay some taxes"? Are you kidding? The top 1% currently pay almost 40% of income taxes already. That's 40 times their "equal share". Isn't 40 times your share a "fair share"? Give me a break.
Also about Romney paying the same tax as people that work for it, Romney's money comes from capital gains on stocks/dividends, etc which is taxed at 15%. No ifs ands or buts about it. Also Romney bought those stocks with money that he earned in his previous job and paid full taxes on that money. So why should it be taxed twice?
I'm tired of hearing "tax the rich" as if they are all bad people. What's wrong with working hard and being successful in this country? Isn't that the American dream - have a idea, take a risk, work hard, and if you succeed you might make a zillion bucks? Take away that big reward and you lose the risk takers and innovation comes to a halt.
This is exactly what happened 4 years ago right after the election...Market down..Shortly into Obama's first term, look what happened: The market more than doubled. Don't worry, the market ALWAYS does better on average with Democrat as president. Things will continue to improve..Step out of the dark side.
