    tax cuts went to everyone who pays taxes. only increasing taxes on the rich means the dems are pandering to class warfare and are afraid of pissing off large numbers of voters. and given the additional spending Obama wants, such hikes will do nothing to solve the deficit and COULD cost job creation

    Feeding hungry children is a state responsibility not a Federal Responsibility and has been pointed out when you raise federal taxes you affect state tax revenues.

    Treating the sick is a state responsibility not a Federal responsibility for what does a Federal Bureaucrat know about a problem in Lansing, Michigan?

    Providing shelter is a state responsibility not a Federal Responsibility for when you send money to the Federal Govt. you pay a middleman to do what you should be doing at the state level.

    Keep thinking only with your heart instead of the brain God gave you.

    I really don't buy that is what motivates people like Kerry and Obama. as Goshin has pointed out ad nauseum, the amount of money taking versus what actually goes to help people who actually needs it is pathetic and small

    the left understands that if such functions were properly left to the states the easy migration from one state to another would prevent any state from being too "generous" because net tax payers would leave that state while it filled with those wanting handouts and that state would go belly up. That is why the left wants federal jurisdiction in welfare-so people like me and other high net taxpayers cannot escape easily.

    people who aren't paying any income taxes but demand more and more money from others?
    I never had a need for weed or any other drug, that's 64 million US citizens but that does not matter to you because some where in your mind you are better then 90% of the global population, unfortunately for you US citizens get to vote and they will not be voting for libertarians or conservatives

    Like far too many liberals they focus on govt. spending instead of taxpayer spending which is where the govt. gets all its money. That way it is easier to shirk state responsibility and blame others for their own failures. Michigan is a disaster and it seems that haymarket is happier blaming someone else and looking for national taxpayer handouts

    Don't let the facts ever get in the way of your personal opinions and biased beliefs
