    Either way, the paying back doesn't show on a chart that lists only spending because "paying back" is not spending.

    I've never heard anybody up against a budget say "I need to cut out food, clothing and shelter, but I refuse to look for a part-time job to supplement what we have coming in."

    I have addressed every point you ever made even though most of them are biased, off based, and contrary to reality. Nice attempt however to derail this thread. I back up my posts with facts that are verifiable. Noticed you and every other liberal here running from the data. Not surprising, those facts cannot be refuted.

    You want to supplement what is coming in with more revenue, then promote a policy that puts 24 million unemployed or underemployed Americans back to work paying full taxes

It makes economic growth easier because of consumer spending which always happens when people have more spendable income. GDP growth means more tax revenue and more employees. Happens every time unless there are economic conditions that prevent it, i.e. recessions, 9/11, and the financial crisis.
    I DON'T have a problem with tax cuts provided they are done in the right way. Currently, I don't think they're having the net redeeming value most would like to think they do. The prime example would be our current economic state and the unemployment numbers.

    YES, we've had to spend alot of money in the last 2.5-3 years, but the reason(s) for that were made very clear - Corporate America created a financial mess they could not get themselves out of and WE, the taxpayers, bailed them out. It was because of their excessive greed that nearly brought our financial system to a complete halt! It was their wrecklessness that cost this country millions of jobs. Yet, what exactly is Corporate America doing now? Building their balance sheets and personal financial portfolios back up while everyone else waits...in unemployment lines.

    Those who blindly support capitalism and the free market system, look at what your blind faith as brought us too? And no. I am not anti-business nor anti-rich. I do not begrudge what the wealthiest among us have achieved. I do, however, have a problem with the irresponsiblity of it all, as well as the lack of accountability. It's like many among the wealthy who caused this mess got their money from the Treasury and gave the rest of us the finger.

    Christianity is built on free will and not forced redistribution. Liberals always confuse that fact and believe Jesus would force people to give to someone else. Free will promotes people doing the right thing and the fact that there are consequences for failure.
