Facing the fact that both the House and Senate are now run by the Republicans, President Obama has finally decided why people voted him in the first place.

Earlier in the week, it was announced that the President would propose raising taxes for those making over $500,000 per year to help with tax breaks for the middle class. The President also announced recently a provision to give college students two years' free tuition, which would cost $60 billion over 10 years.

The plan is to raise the wealthy's tax to 28%, the same level it was under Reagan.

However - you guessed it - the Repukes want the President to simply fix the tax code instead. Utah senator Orrin Hatch says that Obama wants to kill off small businesses and slapping on taxes would hurt jobs. Really? Too bad this assclown was born during the Depression when there wasn't a middle class thanks to years of idiotic Republicans who kissed the wealthy's ass. Right now, the gap between the poorest Americans and the wealthiest is at its highest, and it's all thanks to people like Reagan and the two Bushes.

Look. When FDR was president, he raised taxes for the nation's wealthiest to 90%. End result: the middle class was BOOMING. Men could support their wives and get their kids into a good school. Plus, they could get a new car every two years. Now, one man can barely take care of himself and in many cases, their kids end up moving back in with them because even with a four-year college degree, they can't get a good-paying job.

It's time for the 1% to realize that it's time to help the middle class, and I'm happy that many of them - e.g. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett - know that they're paying close to nothing in taxes. However, I think some of the people the President have in mind in regards to this proposed tax hike include the Koch Brothers and the Walton Family, who are notorious for hardly giving any of their income to charity despite being worth over $100 billion.

But, Obama has a lot of work to do. Convincing the modern Republican is like, well, trying to lead an elephant to water. Since the House and Senate have been bought by the Kochs, I highly doubt if Obama's plan will follow through. Even worse, it's a shame that most Americans seem to don't care, knowing the disastrous result of last year's midterms. But the good news is that at least under Obama, more Americans are working and the economic collapse of seven years ago is only a memory. It's too bad that many Americans are too fucking stupid to get out and help the President achieve dreams.

But the good news is that Hope is floating. After all, he won both elections.
