Nope, not quite...

Barack? Mr. President?

Your leadership on the issue of not extending Bush’s tax cuts to the wealthy has been one of the biggest clusterfucks I have ever witnessed. Not only did you cave in, yet again, you decided to also add a cut in payroll taxes that will directly affect the amount of money going into social security?

I keep hearing how that program is going broke and how people of my generation will not have that as a retirement fallback, so how does this help? How does any of this help anybody, unless you are in the top 1% of this country?

Enjoy your press conference today, Mr. President…where you will demonstrate, yet again, how the people in power in this country have washed their hands of the 99% of us who are supposed to hang out, hand you a towel and hope for a tip.

Have a nice day.
