No Sam, I don't think you are envious or shiftless but I think a great many of his supporters are. I do think you have a sense of fairness. I don't think the rich should pay more than the 30 some odd percentage they do now, however I believe that all income should be taxed at the same rate regardless of where it comes from. Capital gains and investment income taxed at the full rate would automatically make the rich pay more. I don't see why the working man who actually produces something should have in many cases a higher tax bill than those who have investment income. I don't think money should have special labels according to where it comes from.
As for offenses, the worst I think is not only no energy policy but actual discouragement and hostility toward increasing the energy supply coupled with waste of billions on ill informed solar energy schemes.
Continuing patty cake with the banks with no real reform resulting in trillions wasted. What happened to all those shovel ready jobs?
Obamacare and his statements on the duty of the Supreme Court which were ludicrous.
I really do resent in his speeches when he says "we have to live within our means" and then goes out and racks up another trillion in debt. His tendency to say what you would like to hear with no relationship to what he is actually doing. He just has no shame in bald faced transparent lies. He is the second coming of the Kingfish Huey Long.
