I respect those who voted no on this made up fiscal cliff. 40% of anybody’s income is ludicrous.  The bottom line is not about cutting spending but Congress to step up and create jobs, housing, medical care for those receiving aid.  The welfare system has got to change and fraud must be eliminated.

I challenge our politicians to create an environment where those receiving aid earn it to break the chain of “handouts”.  Reform the tax system where a flat tax is implemented for all earning 50,000 or more per year.

Stop sending billions to other nations and create a funding system for our own disasters such as Sandy where people have gone 2 months without aid, heat, and electricity.

Politicians have kicked the can down the road long enough and should it continue it will eventually lead to revolution when there are enough people who have little to nothing and have nothing to lose by creating chaos and attacking the political system that wants to keep them poor.
