Why don't you all come together and sign a petition to force Congress to tax the rich. Occupy Congress! Make them hear you. They have rich friends that pay them money so of course they are against them, but you are the 99% so your vote counts. Congress are the rich's puppets and we need to help our President when so many people are against everything he tries to do for the 99%. Educate these American's that don't know how government works. Educate them on the difference between socialism and equality.

Suggested item#5

" 5. A Fair Tax Code. A complete reformation and simplification of the United States Tax Code to require ALL individuals and corporations to pay a fair share of a progressive, graduated income tax by eliminating loopholes, unfair tax breaks, exemptions and unfair deductions, subsidies and ending all other methods of evading taxes. The current system of taxation unjustly favors the wealthiest Americans, many of whom pay fewer taxes to the United States Treasury than citizens who earn much less and pay a much higher percentage of their incomes in taxes. Any corporation or entity that does business in the United States and generates income from that business in the United States shall be fully taxed on that income regardless of corporate domicile or they will be barred from earning their profits in the United States. This will allow honest companies and individuals who pay their fair share in taxes to take over those markets in the United States economy. Businesses that pay taxes in other countries will no longer be permitted to use that excuse to justify their failure to pay federal income tax in the United States."

Maybe the rich should move out of the country. Take their stinking businesses with them, too. And their money also! Then the 99% can run things
