    This is supposed to be the exact wording of the poll. Not anything like what you've suggested. I believe that you are very mistaken on what happens during polling.
    Ah, why don't they put a poll out there .. just asking a simple question ..... would you mind seeing "your" taxes raised ?

    While it's easy to say yeah lets tax someone else .. as long as it isn't me, I somehow think that polling numbers would change drastically if it was their money they were talking about.

    Sports corporations are the perfect example. They extort money from taxpayers and threaten to move if they are not given free land, free stadiums, tax exemptions, etc. Its corporate extortion....plain and simple.

    Okay, then close corporate welfare for “everyone” that includes giving money to green companies, including offering tax breaks for people to purchase green products, like electric cars, solar panels and other such things. After all if you are against corporate welfare, you have to be against it all right ?

    Although the president hopes to eliminate eight specific tax breaks--which cost the Treasury $43.6 billion over 10 years--only three, accounting for $31.9 billion of that total, are particularly important. Conservatives have no business defending any of them.

    Rigging the tax code to make investments in manufacturing artificially more attractive than investments in something else is an enterprise designed to harm non-manufacturers for the benefit of ... manufacturers. Conservatives who want government to leave markets alone have no business throwing their political bodies in front of this tax break. If their political rhetoric means anything, they would see the president's bid and raise him by calling for total repeal of this tax break for everyone, not just for oil and gas companies.

    Eliminating Oil Subsidies: Two Cheers For President Obama - Forbes.com
    So the US President is eliminating oil subsidies while simultaneously doing whatever he can to make sure that the American people have less access to the energy they need to keep the country running, and more jobs will be lost and costs eventually passed on to the consumer.

    Barrack Obama is either seriously stupid or intent on destroying the US economy. There is absolutely nothing in his policies any rational person can defend.

That's like complaining that the government has taken over all residential construction because the government won't give you a building permit until you get a privately owned architect to draw up some plans for you. The government is in no way competing with the insurance companies, they are helping them if anything by giving them more customers.

    If you can't grasp that concept then everything else we could debate about is pointless because this is a simple concept and you need to understand it before I can learn you any better bro.
    I asked you a question, why do you believe a word Obama tells you and I am waiting for an answer? What happens if you are wrong?

    I think extort is rather strong language, more often then not new stadiums are put up for a vote to the people that will be expected to pay a higher tax rate for a period of time on something. If that vote is passed, then that is the peoples will. No one is out there twisting the arm of the voter to go along with it. People have the right to vote no to anything, if they do so, and a team leaves for greener pastures that is their choice.

    While I might agree with you that teams should build there own stadiums I can hardly blame them for moving to a city that offers them a new stadium, tax breaks, and whatever else they are offered.

    How is it any different then a company coming to you or me, offering us a new house, a new car every 3 years and 40% more in salary, and additional perks that we are not now getting.... but we would have to move to say …. Texas? I'm not sure about you, but I would probably take the new job …... unless the company I worked for was to offer something similar to keep me.

    It is all BS and it is extortion. These are private businesses....We don't give money to all other private businesses. We don't build restaurants for restaurant companies, we don't give free land to Sears or Macy's. We don't lower taxes for Kroger to stay in the city. These things should not be put to a vote. Public money should not be given to private companies.

    I'm proud of the cities that refuse to give into this extortion. Good riddance.

    That's your opinion, and you are certainly entitled to it, I just disagree, people should be allowed to vote, they should be able to have a say in such matters, that is the American way, and if they vote yes, then that is there own will. As long as they are given a choice in the matter … then in my opinion, you can't call it extortion.

    Someone please explain why you believe a word that Barack Obama and his Administration says? this thread topic is a retread of Stimulus One being paid for by NOT spending cuts but instead by increasing taxes. Guess Obama supporters are just used to failure

    All of that is according to you since none of it is factual.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
