    It's also filled with people who are so full of themselves that they assume everyone envies them and so deluded that they think everyone who disagrees with them must be welfare mamas.

Perhaps his request would be better received if he and perhaps you were a bit more honest and called for the tax cuts to be eliminated in their entirety. Not doing so leaves you open to turtle's views.
    Methinks the President is in the same line thinking as the public is.

    Maybe they will just go away, what do you think?

    Robert Reich, Op-Ed: “Among other items, Republicans are demanding major cuts in a nutrition program for low-income women and children. The appropriation bill the House passed June 16 would deny benefits to more than 700,000 eligible low-income women and young children next year. What kind of country are we living in? More than one in three families with young children is now living in poverty (37 percent, to be exact) according to a recent analysis of Census data by Northeastern University’s Center for Labor Market Studies.”

    In its second week, hundreds of people have taken over Liberty Square as part of Occupy Wall Street. What started as a loosely organized protest against the corrupting impact that Wall Street and big financial institutions have had on our democracy seems to be growing into something larger. The persistence and increasing organization of the mostly young protestors is tapping into the pain and disillusionment that millions of young Americans across the nation are feeling as they face bleak economic prospects that show little sign of improving.

    As the Occupy Wall Street protestors lift up the pain that young Americans are experiencing and take it directly to the heart of our country’s corrupted financial system, other movements composed of homeowners, the jobless, faith leaders and the growing ranks of the poor are doing the same. And even better, these groups are demanding that the very banks that caused the economic mess in the first place take specific actions to clean it up and get the economy back on track.

    Earlier this week in California, homeowners, community members, faith leaders and students protested and shut down an auction of foreclosed homes as part of a week-long series of actions to demand that the nation’s big banks stop the foreclosure crisis from wreaking any more havoc on their communities.

    In Ohio, community leaders and union members sent a clear message to U.S. Bank to “clean up the mess they caused” by delivering trash they had collected from a bank-owned foreclosed property to a bank branch.

    And in Boston, at least 1,000 people are expected to take to the streets on Friday for a march on Bank of America. They plan to hold a peaceful sit-in at the bank’s Massachusetts headquarters to demand that BofA reduce principal on inflated home mortgages in Boston.

    Please explain why this is a Federal Taxpayer responsibility? These are local problems that have never been solved by the Federal Govt or the national taxpayers.

    The answer is easy
    Wall Street is/has been stealing from the people
    and the people are waking up. Wall Street makes the rich richer at the expense of the poor, elderly and middle class citizens of this country

    Again a response without thought. These cuts took millions of people off the federal tax system. Millions did not get a reduction to their tax bill, they now pay no tax. I would have expected the above response from Hay, who gave you the thumbs up, but again that is thinking that is lacking a basis in reality.

    Is it enough on this site to just hate so much that the truth have no meaning, if so that is not debate, just mindless spewing back and forth.

    What does Wall Street have to do with the problem? You really think the poor are investing in Wall Street? I have an alarm in my house and have yet seen Wall Street enter my house to steal anything. Sorry you had a bad experience with Wall Street as it probably isn't a place you should be investing. Your argument is bogus and makes no sense. Your outrage over Wall Street is just another excuse people make to divert from their own failures and acceptance of personal responsibility.
