In an “open letter” to the president, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore offers a list of items for Barack Obama to tackle in his second term, urging him to “get some fight” and “drive the rich right off their fiscal cliff.”
Published Monday on his website, the Moore congratulated Obama on his reelection victory, but “respectfully” asked that his second term not resemble the first.
“It’s not that you didn’t get anything done,” Moore said. “You got A LOT done. But there are some very huge issues that have been left unresolved and, dammit, we need you to get some fight in you.
“Wall Street and the uber-rich have been conducting a bloody class war for over 30 years and it’s about time they were stopped,” he said.
Moore proposes a far-left agenda that includes letting the entire Bush-era tax cuts expire: “Drive the rich right off their fiscal cliff,” Moore says. “The ‘fiscal cliff’ is a ruse, an invention by the Right and the rich, to try and keep their huge tax breaks,” he said. “On December 31, let ALL the tax cuts expire.”
