Steele is out of touch

February 14, 2010

It will take me 15 years to make $1 million, figuring I could bank my entire salary. I make more than the average American family, which isn't anywhere close to the 2 percent that earn over $250,000. So I ask Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, to whom were you referring Thursday, when you said "a million dollars is not a lot of money"? Perhaps your greedy buddies on Wall Street? Or the fat cats you supported for tax cuts while opposing the Recovery Act, that has saved or created millions of jobs?

In addition, I understand, the Republican leader on the House budget committee just proposed a budget that privatizes Social Security and shreds Medicare.

Oh, by the way, did I mention fifteen years from now I'll be 74. Can't afford health care now and probably won't in my golden years. The GOP, Mr. Steele, needs to stop trying to bring President Obama down. Make it your goal to bring this great country together!
