Richest are leaving the rich behind.
Check out the graphs, too.

I don’t think this is going to go over well. It sounds good on paper, but the cost will get passed down to everyone else. Trickledown economics unfortunately works with urine too.

blah. i don't like this. I too think that this will be left to future generations to clean up. This all is so frustrating to me especially because i still cannot vote, and so many decisions that are going to affect my life and the lives of my children and i have no say in them at all.
To my elders, get your shit together.
Pardon my French.

SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVE WAY TO MUCH MONEY!!! yeah our younger generations will have to pick up the tab of our tax cuts now but, man, how do they expect us to pick our selves up by our bootstraps if we dont have bootstraps in the first place. yes we need to think about our future but we also need to look where we are at now.

Well I do thing the rich should pay more. It sounds good on paper like Mat said but only time will tell if it will really work. Also we do need to do something about the economy and this is a start. If we don't do anything now then it will just get worse. I know I will be affected by this in the future specially my kids but isn't that how it always works. We mess up find a way to fix it see how long it takes to fix. We should suck it up and try to prepare for the worst.

Personally, I didn't like Obama in the beginning. Something about him was kind of "eh", you know? I think he was the wrong person for the job, and it seems to me as though people are starting to figure that out.

Exactly, it is our elders that are hyper or super rich, even the older peole with money have someone that they will leave it to when they die, the money will be then disturbited accordingly and on average it doesnt make it past two generations I believe. This means money spent and money earned by others.

I don't have kids and I feel really sorry for them already, There going to be paying for banks we had to bail out and who then go and give out bonuses? I changed my mind I'm moving to SUI where there quality of life is high, and their is no debt.

I agree samantha, the world our kids live in is going to be a tough one. We are putting them in a bad position. It's a scary time even for my generation. Ugh, bad economy's suck =]
