The United States of America is poised this Friday to experience dramatic cutbacks in expenditure in virtually all aspects of our government. James Koutz, head of the American Legion, issued a plea for both parties to avoid impacting the lives of Americans who serve in our armed forces. He urged contacting members of Congress in an effort to avoid cutting veteran funding for medical care or impacting their families in order to save money. “Let your elected officials know you expect them to work this out. It is unacceptable.”
Little does Mr. Koutz understand what is at stake. Does he grasp the impact on lives of millionaires if they have to pay another 3% of their income in taxes? How will this impact their nannies and maintenance of their yachts? Does Mr. Koutz realize the impact in purchase of furs and other luxuries which provide jobs to Americans??
