The fiscal cliff

To the Editor:

Here’s the way I see it.  The “job creators” have had over 10 years to create jobs, but they have not created the jobs.  They have done very well to increase their own revenues.  However, the Republican congress wants them to continue not doing what they have not been doing; i.e., creating jobs so the country can prosper.

So, what can the rest of us do to keep the country from going bankrupt.  The Republicans want us to give up Medicare, Medicaid, “Obamacare” and possibly Social Security.  What would you give up if doing so would save the country from bankruptcy?  Would it be Medicare, Medicaid, health care, social security or a $2,000 increase in your family’s current taxes?
