Reader comment on: President Obama's CNBC Town Hall
Submitted by Betty (United States), Sep 21, 2010 11:51
Reaganomics helped raise the federal deficit. Bush helped raise the deficit with his tax cuts, he did not cut spending, and then added billions in spending by invading Iraq, which was not the country that hosted terrorism. Why do you blame Obama for that???
I come from a household with more than $400,000 in ammual salaries, (excluding capital gains and income from portfolios managed by wealth advisors) and assets of more than $20 million. President Obama has inherited a jobless recovery from the previous administration. We need to help the working and middle classes, not wealthy people like me. Please note that I have voted for both Democrats and Republications, and that I used to work as an investment manager helping the very wealthy with investment porfolios that minimized their taxes. I do not need a tax cut, and neither do the private equity managers and their clients, of which I am one. Stop blaming Obama.
