If you'd like more background on Senator Sander's speech, he discusses it in his Week in Review.
You probably know that yesterday President Obama was strong-armed into agreeing to continue these outrageous tax breaks, averaging $100,000 a year, to wealthy Americans while you and I struggle to put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads. That was the cost the Republicans exacted to continue much more marginal tax breaks for the rest of us. Oh yes, and to extend unemployment benefits a while longer for those shut out in the cold during the downturn. Who caused the downturn? The richest in our country, the men and women benefiting from this enormous tax break in their pursuit of ever greater wealth and power. May they hang their heads in shame and give it all back.
I feel enormous gratitude to Senator Sanders for standing up for us. I'm writing to thank him for going on record in his attempt to protect us. If you would like to do the same, you can write to him using his Contact form.
Ordinary Heroes Award
To the Honorable Senator Sanders: You're my hero today, Senator. Thank you for working so hard to protect ordinary Americans from the rampant greed of the wealthy few. Thank you for using the power of your voice and your office to advocate for us. Thank you for your energy and love and deep concern for our welfare. Thank you for speaking out about "a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America, against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of our country." May you be blessed beyond your wildest imagining.
