Sound off, voters!

Nathaniel Batchelder December 19th, 2012

In 2000, George Bush took the White House with 48 percent of the popular vote and 271 electoral votes. He cut taxes and waged war on Iraq.

In 2012, Barack Obama was reelected with 50.5 percent of the popular vote and 332 electoral votes. He wants to restore taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent to the level before the Bush tax cut, but protect the bottom 98 percent from a tax increase, including households and businesses with incomes under $250,000.

Sixty percent of Americans support Obama’s plan, so it should pass, unless Republicans block it. Maybe people should contact their representatives in Congress.
