    Should we eliminate things like this the child tax credit?
    Guess they do so should we eliminate tax loopholes on all income earners?

    I think samharris answers the "You can donate as much money to the government as you want" argument.

    Some readers will point out that I am free to donate to the treasury even now. But such solitary sacrifice would be utterly ineffectual, and I am no more eager than anyone else is to fill the pork barrels of corrupt politicians. However, if Gates and Buffett created a mechanism that bypassed the current dysfunction of government, earmarking the money for unambiguously worthy projects, I suspect that there are millions of people like myself who would not hesitate to invest in the future of America.

    Aw so filling the coffers of corrupt politicians isn't a viable program then why do you want others to contribute more to those same corrupt politicians? Are you actually saying that just maybe contributing more to solving local problems by local taxes actually may be better than sending it to the govt so they can distribute that money to where they deem necessary?

    But you said Obama's low JAR is indicative of his "failed leadership." But Reagan had a lower JAR than Obama -- why do you hold him to a different standard?

    Nope, a thousand dollars means a lot more to a person making 30k vs a guy making 500k

    When exactly did the 1981-82 recession end and what was the approval rating two years after the end of that recession?

    Ronald Reagan From the People

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    Don't have to read the article to know that local problems are better handled locally than from a bureaucrat in D.C.

    Like I said, I knew you'd make an exception for Reagan. How can Obama's low JAR be an indication of failed leadership but Reagan's JAR, which sank lower than Obama's, not also be indicative of failed leadership.

    I like how you make up your own meanings for low job approval ratings. Apparently, you have one standard for Republicans and a completely different standard for Democrats. Says everything anyone needs to know about you.

    Can you read the approval ratings? Do you understand the difference between having a pro growth economic plan like Reagan and a Micromanaging massive central govt. plan of Obama's? Apparently not thus you continue to be brainwashed by Obama. That 38% recent poll number for Obama is over 2 years after the end of the recession. Reagan ended up adding 17 million jobs. Think that Obama will generate those kind of numbers?

    My standard has always been results, Reagan got positive results and Obama has generated negative economic results. The comparison is a stark contrast.
