    Is anyone surprised that you'll never blame the Dems?

    why didn't they pay "income taxes"

    ut it paid not a penny in taxes because the bulk of those profits, some $9 billion, were offshore

    so you think GE should pay taxes on income it generated in other countries (and paid taxes on that income in other countries).

    The company claims that its zero-dollar tax bill is largely a result of losses at its financial arm, GE Capital, due to the Wall Street meltdown.

    so you think they should not be able to offset loses?

    Well, your plan (although a bit oversimplified) actually accomplishes the goal, which is more than I can say for any of the other posters to whom I've posed the same question in the last couple weeks, so kudos for that. But actually executing that plan politically (and then dealing with the subsequent economic devastation) would be another matter entirely.

    Politicians are trying to figure out how to make other political parties look stupid and irresponsible, rather than trying to solve problems.

That's why your ilk will go after our social programs designed for our people before you go after forever war which has wasted over a trillion dollars.

    And the ironic thing is this whole "fear" montra you drag up because the Republicans used it well to sell us all sorts of increased government because the big bad terrorist was gonna get us. FEAR! HA. Peas in a pod buddy, peas in a pod.
    Hate to break the news to you but the Dems are as bad as the Reps when it comes to starting/fighting wars.

    Yeah, that's it. The Republicans invented the debt ceiling. If it weren't for that, Democrats would never run out of money.

    It was Clinton who raised taxes on social security in 1993.
