    I believe the opposite. Tax and spending cuts should be put off until the economy recovers

    Bottom line is the country needs money and taxes on the wealthy need to be raised.

    I think we need to cut spending first, raise taxes later.

    I think if one is to be demanded, the other must be as well. And as Mr. Clinton has stated - this is not the time to rock the boat and risk any more damage to the economy.

    Don't give me this 'bottom line' crapola....This country could have been well on its way to a stable economy had the liar occupying the WH, along with the far left progressive wing that has hijacked the demo party been willing to actually do the necessary to actually spur economic growth in this country.

    But, instead what did they opt for? Insane spending which were really nothing more than payoffs to friendly constituents for their votes cast in '08. Talk about corruption, and cronyism...

    You want to talk about what would ease this morass we are now in thanks to the liar n chief? Stop the record spending going on right now and return stability to the business market in this country. Until you do that, jobs are only a wish on a list of a failing economy, and the failure of a President that has liberals hypnotized like the zombies in the movie, the mummy....Chant with me Emotep, Emotep....

    I agree.

    That should include Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Allow significant reform to be done to them and I can agree to some tax increase that to some degree hits every bracket.

    At some point this will have to be a reality, but we need to first see that our liberal friends are serious about cutting their habits with our money. Right now all I see is the same game of bait and switch that they always have done.

    Yeah - fun thing about being President is that you can say **** and not carry the burden of following thorugh with it.
