I’m appalled at our republican party for not embracing this call for a new minimum tax rate for individuals making more than $1 million a year to ensure that they pay at least the same percentage of their earnings as middle-income taxpayers. I am ashamed of our millionaires that their love of money is more important than their love of our country. I voted republican the last election hoping for a resurrection of truth and integrity in our Government. But you are all a bunch of hypocrites! You line your pockets with your dirty money! Shame on you democrats, you’re no better than the phony republicans. Special interest groups and lobbyist provide you hypocrites with the money you need to get re-elected. Your allegiance is not for the American people. Our forefathers would be ashamed of our government. I am ashamed of all of you. It’s time for the people to get a new government, one that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.
When I read this article my reasoning was why should these eleven be charged stealing from a pension fund. It seems hypocritical for our government to file any charges against these 11 people. It seems insane that our senators and representatives who have served in our government get away with stealing 4.63 trillion dollars from social security over the past 40 years are not being charged! And many of them have retired with good pensions and health benefits while the rest of us have to fend for ourselves. You should be ashamed of yourselves! Most of you are hypocrites! It just proves to me that most of you are self-serving without a conscience. You have sold your honor to your wealthy constituents and lobbyist. These eleven only stole 1 billion dollars while you stole 4.63 trillion dollars.
