    Nope. The other team doesn't necessarily have to be playing politics. But, Obama, in this instance, certainly is. He proposes a stimulus that he knows republicans already don't want and offers to pay for it with tax increases republicans have already rejected.

    Republicans will also, at times, play politics. In other words, republicans are not always righteous. So, basically, your entire statement is a bunch of hog wash.

    Why do Leftists continue to scream about, oil company subsidies and corporate welfare, but can never point to a single example of such subsidies and welfare; yet, have no problem with companies like Solyndra, taking a hike with a half billion bucks in tax payer dollars?

    Your question is moot, because this isn't anything more than a re-tread of the stealfromus package.

    "Going off as planned", means higher taxes. So, I won't be voting for Obama's dumbass, either way.

    Somthing to think about

    Obama has proposed another 'Economic Stimulus' payment.

    This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format:

    Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?
    A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

    Q.. Where will the government get this money ?
    A. From taxpayers.

    Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?
    A. Only a smidgen of it.

    Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?
    A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

    Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
    A. Shut up.

    Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

    * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .
    * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
    * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China .
    * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala ..
    * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
    * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
    * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

    Instead, keep the money in America by:

    1) Spending it at yard sales, or
    2) Going to ball games, or
    3) Spending it on prostitutes, or
    4) Beer or
    5) Tattoos.

    (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )

    Conclusion:

    Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !

    No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help.

    Damn, and we were so depending on your vote.

    Did I say anything about an effective rate of 25%? Didn't think so.

    The fact that a relatively few hedge fund managers make more money than 100 million Americans combined is the problem -- not that they pay nearly 15% in income taxes.
