    Canada and Germany have higher taxes then you, and we're doing a lot better economically then you, this unhealthy fixation on taxes is a distraction on the more complex issues that are your economic woes.

    If we eliminate the capital gains tax, we might as well give up all pretense of taxing the upper class at all, like the good old days of feudalism.

    Of course, back then, the aristocracy made up for not paying taxes by fighting in wars.

    Different situation Jet, different countries, your obsession with comparing apples and oranges is unhealthy.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, because only super rich people invest money, the middle class, they don't... no won't help them at all...

    You fail to understand my point, you look at a lot of this stuff from a very one dimensional point of view, you tend to be rather reactionary and suggest economic ideas that you fail to grasp of their full effects. Not raising the debt ceiling being a recent example.

    My point... Again! Is that there is this seriously unhealthy fixation on personal income taxes for the wealthy, for anyone for that matter, when the more complex issues of why the US is in the position it's in goes undiscussed...

    There's a lot more to jobs and economies then that.

    So what specifically about his plan "creates" or even encourages job creation?
    God Has Boobs. It's in the Bible.

    where are the jobs that the bush tax cuts, which are still in effect, were supposed to create? where? according to conservative logic, we should have more jobs than we can fill.

    With the help of thousands of battlefield fodder from the lower-class for every member of the royalty who fought.
