Gee, yesterday it just so happened that the President himself argued that the various tax benefits to be had by the middle class justifies his support for the continuation of tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Republicans and most democrats seem to agree this is OK. Even many of today’s pundits are calling this a fair “deal.”

Partisan politics aside, if that is possible, why is it no surprise that once again our politicians, even those elected on the premise that they would help out the little people, are supporting un-needed and un-justified tax benefits for the richest one or two percent of the population, and the increased deficit be damned?

Is there no better argument than this hypocrisy for mandating government-funded elections, to put the people back in democracy, and help get some of the big money out of politics?
