    The point you made is always supporting the claim that we have a revenue problem when I claim we don't have a revenue problem but instead a spending problem. You want more revenue then there are over 65 million working Americans that aren't paying any FIT and some are getting a refund so their net tax is negative. The top 10% pay over 70% of the taxes but "your" President claims that isn't enough and that they aren't paying their fair share. So I guess paying taxes isn't one's fair share but paying zero in FIT is? There is no logic in that argument so it concerns me when people buy the Obama rhetoric.

    I'm sure that's going to work just fine.
    And it appears you think offshore drilling is going to employ 25 million plus people because that's the only regulation that you can come up with that's from Obama.

    Tax cuts (which failed to increase jobs) and offshore drilling is your magical answer?

    No what it shows is that Business has no confidence in this Administration and knows that the net affect of the Bush tax cut has been negated by this Administration and their regulations and micro managing of the economy. Obamacare and potential for higher taxes offset those Bush tax cuts. If you think we have a revenue problem are you send in more money than required? If not, why not?

    You miss the point, when I say that you can't base an economy on just a handful of different industries. It's important to encourage all industries to grow, such as the oil and gas industry and the coal industry. They employ people, too.

    How many green jobs did Solyndra create?

    First off, I've never said anything about cutting taxes, that's a Left Wing talking point invented to attack Conservatives with. Secondly, offshore drilling is going to create jobs as well as billions in tax revenue. While it's obviously not going to take the unemployment rate to zero, it would make perfect sense to encourage any American industry that will create jobs. How much tax revenue has Solyndra created?

    We were losing jobs WITH Bush in charge and WITH the tax cuts in place. You can blame Obama all you want but it didn't work even with a different administration.

    Why raise taxes and take away the private sector's spending power?

    No, we were losing jobs with the Democrats running Congress and promising to stick it to the private sector.

    please......how many things are you going to throw and see if they stick? losses can be written off. no one is being PENALIZED, they are being taxed on their income just like everybody else. do you admit there is no double taxation here?
