    There's no such thing as Republican fiscal responsibility. They outspend everyone...well Obama is gonna take that title for now, but they did a damned good job. Their economic policies are usually bad for the whole of us, good for a select few. But the Democrats have become the same.

    The entire show here of people saying "It's Obama's fault" and pretending that the Republicans would be different would be hilarious if it weren't so devastating to the whole of the Republic. So long as we remain blinded by partisan politics, we'll never fix the real problem.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    They are sitting on their money because it is the policy of this administration to bludgeon them at every turn, demonize them as you have here, and inject uncertainty. Cutting the Cap Gains rate would absolutely spur job growth, always has.

    It's a bottom line issue because the govt passed laws that make it profitable for them to do so. You act like free trade agreements sign themselves.

    And the job creation under cap-gains tax cutting repubs does not support your claim. Reality rarely does

    Well, outline for us then your personal system complete with marginal tax rates, and regulations of the perfect society.

    Oh, and you keep posting that chart that is not yet been cited as to your source...Why are you hiding that?

    ask the democrat governors of new york, california, connecticut, maryland, illinois...

    ask the state assemblies of massachusetts, jersey, lincoln land...

    ask the mayors of new york, chicago, detroit...

    ask ANYONE in the eu...
