Having said that, there's no graph that shows which country gets more bang for their taxed bucks, but that is another point altogether.

    I'm interested in hearing feedback and whether this surprises you or not.

    It would be wonderful to have posts based on something a little less than coming from a socialist nation and an extremely liberal News Org.

    Thanks for your completely unsourced rebuttal opinion there internet guy. We will consider it with all the weight it merits.

    these would be the tax breaks that resulted in the wealthy paying more taxes, yes?

    No wonder the right hates it
    no. it was cuts to providers, which mean that seniors wouldn't get healthcare. according to the Medicare Actuaries; were Obamacare to fully go into effect, huge percentages of providers would simply stop seeing Medicare patients all-together, or go bankrupt.

    I'm very surprised but happy both you and Turtledude are of the opinion that elimination the Bush tax cuts will lower taxes for the wealthy.

    Sure does seem strange, if that is the case, that the GOP has been fighting so hard to protect them.

    Many far right conservatives in this country today feel the US was a socialist nation for the half century period when our tax system was more progressive.
