Opinion: Where are the tax breaks promised by the Democrats for middle-class and poor?
My name is not “Joe,” I am not a plumber.
During the 2008 elections, Obama and the Democrats promised tax cuts for the middle- and lower-income taxpayers. I still have not received my tax cut. I am a retired, middle-income taxpayer and disabled veteran. Where is my tax cut?
If this is how Obama and the Democrats are going to lie to me, then why should I vote for any Democrat at any level in future elections?
I wonder how many other taxpayers still have not received their tax cut yet. I strongly encourage anyone that has not received their tax cut (especially retirees) to vote “no” for Democrats in future elections.
It is bad enough that we retirees did not receive a COLA for Social Security during the last two years, but I also did not receive a COLA for my veteran’s disability either for the last two years.
Shame on you Democrats. Evidently you elected politicians do not support the troops/veterans like you proclaim. You could have passed some kind of special congressional legislation (instead of defeating it on 12-8-2010) to at least give us disabled veterans some kind of COLA.
