    I love that he occasionally swerves in to the truth. He is bluffing.

    You are talking to the one term Marxist president?

    Awesome. The Ku Klux Klan and the National Socialist Party. Well. I guess that finishes the debate.

    Again, let me say it again and again. We have a system right now. The fact that you are saying that Obama promised so much unemployment is thanks to his actions in saving our current system.

    25 Tax Cuts Passed By Obama & Democrats[3]
    Individuals

    “Making Work Pay” tax credit
    Earned Income Tax Credit increased
    Increased Eligibility for Refundable Portion of Child Credit
    “American Opportunity” Education Tax Credit
    First-time Home Buyer Credit
    Temp. Suspension of Taxation of Unemployment Benefits
    Tax Credits for Energy-Efficient Improvements to Existing Homes
    Sales Tax Deduction for Vehicle Purchases
    Premium Credits for COBRA Continuation Coverage for Unemployed Workers
    Economic Recovery Credits to Recipients of Social Security, SSI, RR Retirement, and Veterans Disability Compensation Benefits
    Computers as Qualified Education Expenses in 529 Education Plans
    Plug-in Electric Drive Vehicle Credit
    Tax Parity for Transit Benefits
    Health Coverage Tax Credit Expansion

    Small Business

    Extension of Enhanced Small Business Expensing
    5-Year Carryback of Net Operating Losses for Small Businesses
    Extension of Bonus Depreciation
    Exclusion of 75% of Small Business Capital Gains from Taxes
    Temporary Small Business Estimated Tax Payment Relief
    Temporary Reduction of S Corporation Built-In Gains Holding Period from 10 Years to 7 Years

    Other Business

    Advanced Energy Investment Credit
    Tax Credits for Alternative Refueling Property
    Work Opportunity Tax Credits for Hiring Unemployed Veterans and Disconnected Youth
    Delayed Recognition of Certain Cancellation of Debt Income
    Election to Accelerate Recognition of Historic AMT/R&D Credits

    Fun Fact: 1/3 of the $862 billion stimulus was for tax cuts, something Republicans claim to support … although they still stand against stimulus. I suppose it depends on who gets the tax cuts. <Allegedly?>

    . . . Various busybody laws deleted

    Education
    Student loans[1]
    Ends “socialistic” federal subsidies to banks and other financial institutions (Interestingly, Republicans are okay with the kind of socialism that redirects taxpayer money to banks and other financial institutions.)
    Eliminates unnecessary “middle-man” in student loan process, which placed financial burden on taxpayers while banks took in profits
    Annual student loan payment capped at 10% of income
    Saves an estimated $61 billion over 10 years
    <This was the nationalization of the student loan program. Can we whisper the term "Marxist"?>


    Health Care
    Children’s health insurance bill[2]
    CBO said bill will allow states to cover more than four million uninsured children by 2013, in addition to seven million already covered
    Requires states to provide dental and mental illness coverage to children
    Health care reform
    Insurers cannot cancel coverage when a person gets sick
    Requires health insurance corporations to cover preexisting conditions
    Eliminates lifetime limits
    Allows insurance purchase across state lines
    Allows young adults to stay on parents’ health insurance policy until 26
    <This was the nationalization of the health care industry on a time frame intended to conceal its damage until after the One term Marxist president gets safely re-elected... Can we whisper the term "Marxist"?>


    Crime & Civil Rights
    Hate crime legislation[4] ...because who could possibly be against punishing someone more for a crime if they "hated"?
    Provides protection for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people
    Tribal Law and Order Act
    Provide additional means to reduce high rates of violent crime, including rape & sexual assualt within Native American reservations
    View the rescuetruth.com post on the Tribal Law and Order Act

    Other
    The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act
    Expands service and voluteer opportunites
    Benefits education, health care, energy, etc.
    Wasn't this 'paid-volunteerism? LOL.

    Stimulus
    Cash for Clunkers successfully contributed to 680,000+ vehicle sales in summer 2009
    Largest clean energy investment ever made Left-propaganda
    Reduced deficit by $122 billion[5] Left-propaganda
    Reduced federal spending by 2%[5] Left-propaganda

    Great stuff indeed!

    There is no doubt he is a leader, it's just that his followers tend to be a little slow.

    How do you debate someone who posts like this?

    Conservatives created this situation where nearly half of us don't pay federal income taxes, now they want to reverse it, which is a good thing.
    Obama creates all these tax credits but wants to reverse them now, but this is a bad thing.

    Let's risk it. The risk of doing something to stop this extra-constitutional government now is far less than the risk of increasing our spending. Let us get a balanced budget amendment going. Let's start closing down those vast bureaucracies filled with busy bodies who monitor our lives and make us miserable for our own good. Let us return to a Constitutionally-limited government once again. Let's start by agreeing to a course with large, permanent, current spending cuts and no new taxes. Let's widen the tax base so that all pay some.

    Significant inflation has already begun. Nearly a year ago the sizes of the packages of things I bought were reduced by up to 20% in order to keep the obvious price increase from being, well, obvious.

    Today I marveled at how much the prices of everything have increased. We have the Obama-depression and Obama-inflation. J. Carter's misery index is once again needed. Between unemployment and inflation I bet the one term Marxist president Obama has the inept president Carter matched if not beaten.
