Why not tax the very rich?

Well, I’ve heard both sides of the budget situation – Republican and Democrat.  Frankly I don’t understand how the Republicans can take the stance that the very rich must not be taxed further.  Why not? 

Did the rich invest in jobs during George W. Bush’s administration?  Apparently not, or we wouldn’t be needing jobs now.  So, why not go back to the taxes during Clinton’s administration?   

I’m barely keeping up with all this, but good sense makes good sense.  And most of mainstream America seems to agree with me. 

Plus, how about taxing the oil companies… we are paying ‘way too much for gasoline.  Some of their big profits should go toward helping this country, not their pockets.

Maybe we should be releasing some of our own oil for use in this country.
