From one of our Bay Area members, Khanh B. Nguyen:
My semi-regular Sunday morning rant:
More clarity on the greed behind the Senate tax bill: taking money from families making less than $75,000 per year and giving it those wealthier. The more wealthy, the more money. How does this happen? Repeal the health care mandate so that premium is raised on those who can least afford them, and making the corporate tax cuts permanent but the individual tax cuts temporary.
The goals are simple: make the rich richer, the poor poorer. In a way, this is the core issue. All others - health care, immigrations, and morality - can be seen as tactics and tools to get enough votes in Congress to make this happen.
