The Costs of the Military-Industrial Complex

Congress, Where 44 Percent Are Millionaires, Freezes Pay

David Lightman, McClatchy Newspapers: "Congress, where 44 percent are millionaires, freezes pay. Facing election-year pressure to keep a lid on their salaries, lawmakers in Congress have agreed quietly not to increase their pay next year. As a result, most members of Congress next year will receive $174,000 in 2011 under legislation awaiting President Barack Obama's signature, the same amount they're getting this year."

Fourteen Ways a 90 Percent Top Tax Rate Fixes Our Economy and Our Country

Dave Johnson, Truthout: "A return to Eisenhower-era, 90 percent top tax rates helps fix our economy in several ways: 1) It makes it take longer to end up with a fortune. In fact, it makes people build and earn a fortune instead of shooting for quick windfalls. This forces long-term thinking and planning instead of short-term scheming and scamming. If grabbing everything in sight and running doesn't pay off anymore, you have to change your strategy."

The Costs of the Military-Industrial Complex

Rose Aguilar, Your Call: "In 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave his now famous farewell speech about the military-industrial complex. He said we must never let the weight of the disastrous rise of misplaced power endanger our liberties or democratic process. He said, 'Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.'"
