An article every voter should read

Professor Richard Thaler from the University of Chicago business school wrote an excellent article about income tax policy in the United States. Bottom line - extending income tax breaks to the top 2% of Americans is just plain irresponsible. Our economy will not improve as a result of extending these tax breaks. No more jobs will be created. These tax breaks will only go to people who will stick the money in the bank. We're simply going to make the wealthy even more wealthy, while our deficits continue to increase. Yet, this is a cornerstone of the Republican Pledge to America?

Our Republican party is simply leading us down the path that they led us under George W Bush. We're going to give tax cuts to the very wealthy, to make them even more wealthy. We're going to kick the middle class in the teeth. Our economy will continue to go nowhere. Jobless rates will remain sky high. Our deficits will grow. Our nation will go to hell in a hand basket. This is what our Republican Party is promising us. Right. Got it.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
