    The economy already sucks, why kick it in the teeth?

    Because, what better way to "fundamentally transform" a country you don't care for.

    In fact, right now shows that giving supply side more money won't change things. Increasing supply makes no sense when there is no rise in demand. But it's amazing how many people here don't get that.

    You won't believe how much of an advantage that gives you on people here. Most people here cannot read a basic financial statement. Much less have the intelligence to do a decent economic analysis.

    Thank you for quoting the dictionary. But Obama isn't holding the country hostage, the GOP who only cares about the rich that line their pockets that is holding our country hostage and everyone who believes this is all Obama's fault or the democrats fault and takes no blame for their own party, then they are blind.
