Wealth for the Common Good is a network of business leaders, wealthy individuals and partners supporting public policies that promote shared prosperity and fair taxation.
Over the last 30 years, we have disproportionately benefited from the economic policies. We feel it’s time rebalance the economy so that it works for everyone — not just the wealthy. Our country is facing unprecedented economic challenges right now: We all need to pay our fair share to resolve these issues and make long overdue investments in education, health, energy and infrastructure.
Right now we’re leading our first campaign, calling on President Obama and Congress to immediately reverse the Bush-era tax cuts on household incomes over $235,000. This could raise an estimated $43 billion in annual revenue.
It is powerful when those who would pay a tax speak publicly on its behalf. It’s important that we let our elected officials know ....
waldorfmom I donate to charities AND i don't complain about paying my taxes.
That is the difference between a Republican and a Democrat. Lets be real here, Republicans in general just aren't charitable people, they look out for numero uno and thats why they are so concerned with the small amount of money that gets taken from their taxes each year.

"$43 billion in annual revenue"
That could go a long way.
Reversing the Bush tax cuts wont hurt the people making over 235,000 a year. It's apparent that trickle down economics does NOT create jobs like Pubs claim it does, so lets put that 43 bill to good use.
