Why News Anchors And Reporters Took Sides On Bush Tax Cuts Fight

Did you ever wonder why your favorite news person(s) never reported on why the temporary Bush tax cuts should be allowed to expire for those making more than $250,000? Instead, actually defending those lopsided tax cuts? Well, I actually told you why way back in September 2010. But if you gave it some serious though for just a couple of minutes, you wouldn’t need anyone to tell you; you’d figure it out for your self.

As I and a very small number of other people tried to tell the public, ending the meant-to-be-temporary tax cuts for the wealthy was never expected to be the fix for our debt; it was meant to end the privilege of paying a smaller tax rate than someone making $50,000.

As I said in 2010, today’s crop of news anchors and reporters are self-serving reporters. They take the side best suited for them personally, which in this case is insisting that regular working folks share the country’s burdens so they, the reporters, can live higher on the hog. As one wise man saidA ‘sacrifice’ where some give up luxuries and others give up necessities is in no way ‘shared’”.

Now take a hard look at the 100-plus names below then ask yourself how many of them make less than the $250,000 original threshold set by President Obama. Then ask yourself if you were one of them would you not want to keep your better tax rate. The vast majority of us don’t have the same mind-set as Warren Buffet, so we have to be forced to do the right thing.
