The Republican Party with its wealthy corporate and tea party backers continues to take a rigid, irresponsible stance of no tax increases toward presidential or Democratic economic proposals: stimulus, health care, regulation, budget, debt limit, and job creation. They dismiss many proposals without debate. The public is not getting evidence for what works and what doesn't. Most media focus on politics instead of informing us.
An article by economists Linda Bilmes and Joseph Stiglitz states that well over 25 percent of the increase in our national debt since 2001 was caused by spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without paying for them. Ronald Reagan raised taxes three times. George W. Bush, instead of paying for wars, irresponsibly cut taxes, which triggered a deep recession and huge deficits from which only a slow recovery is possible. The Republicans must stop blaming President Obama for a mess Bush created which Obama has responsibly slowed and begun reversing.
Citizens need decent-paying jobs. There is no certainty that millionaires are going to use tax breaks to invest in job growth. But there is certainty that more people will end up unemployed and homeless if more jobs aren't created soon; this is exactly what the president's jobs proposal will do.
Congress must realize the dangers to the well-being of our unemployed citizens and to our democratic form of government if some taxes aren't raised soon. Raising taxes, as well as cutting wasteful spending, can be the responsible, moral thing to do.
