Politicians do have the power to change taxes. Do you remember a short while back all the hoo ha about whether or not to extend the Bush tax cuts for
the wealthiest people?
So, politician absolutely are in charge of who pays what tax, and they can change it. We do need to make our politicians change it though. The way
it is now, they dont feel they have to listen to us anymore. Last spring the Supreme Court issued a ruling that has allowed corporations to freely
buy political campaigns. And now, essentially, the gloves are off. A lot of the just flat out weird and kinda creepy disregard for public opinion,
and your politicians pretty brazenly telling voters to screw themselves while sucking up to corporate America is because of this.
What we have to do is not get our information about who to vote for from the media, where they corporate sponsored politicians will be advertised. We
need to vote in someone who ISNT running ads. Someone who isnt in bed with the corporations. And then we need to do some house cleaning.
