“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
My point was to show that these things are interdependent on each other.
I have seen a number like 700 billion over 10 years with is 70 billion a year to pay for the 1.5 trillion dollar deficit we are generating each year and not one liberal has acknowledged a downside to raising taxes with 25 million unemployed or under employed Americans. Right now 70 million Americans aren't paying any FIT, is that their fair share in your world?
Half of Americans pay no federal income taxes. Half of Americans live with their hands out looking to a politician to promise to fill them. And many of those same Americans believe that those of us who do pay nearly all of the taxes are not paying our fair share. Awesome!
This is why we are doomed.

In 2007, about 38 percent of households paid no federal income tax, a figure that jumped to 49 percent in 2008, according to estimates by the Tax Policy Center.
In 2008, President George W. Bush signed a law providing most families with rebate checks of $300 to $1,200. Last year, Obama signed the economic recovery law that expanded some tax credits and created others. Most targeted low- and middle-income families.
Bi-partisan politics at work here. But, please continue to blame only one party. Obama isn't a good president, but he certainly isn't the anti-christ.
