President Obama has thrown down the gauntlet and demanded Congress examine our tax code to ensure everyone is paying their fair share:
"It is wrong that in the United States of America a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker who earns $50,000 should pay higher tax rates than somebody pulling in $50 million."
And he's right. It's time to call out Republicans who are putting millionaire tax breaks before middle class jobs.
One of President Obama's key proposals is the "Warren Buffett Rule," which is quite simple: people making more than $1 million a year should pay at least the same percentage of their income in taxes as middle-class taxpayers.
Take action today and tell Speaker Boehner and House Republicans that it's time everyone contributes what's fair. Enough with the Tea Party games. If they want to stick to their "my way or the highway" strategy, it's up to us to show them the off-ramp.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
