    Great, why do you support the liberal policies of this President? You should know better then.

    Why do you care about what someone else pays in taxes since tax revenue went up AFTER the Bush tax cuts were fully implemented, July 2003? The tax cuts didn't cause the debt during the Bush years, spending did. Over 5 trillion of the current debt was generated by the Democrat control of Congress from 2007 on

    Because I prefer demand over supply side.

    BTW this jobs plan cost 678 billion.
    Tax cuts cost nothing unless you can explain how you keeping more of your money is an expense to the govt?

    You seem to have no problem with a 3.7 trillion dollar govt either. Demand is increased when people have more spendable income. Higher taxes mean lower spendable income so how does that create demand?

    Those two stats are not comparable in that sense. Here is my impression of Conservative "debating":

    Conservative: OMG Check out statistic A. Obama sucks.
    Rational Person: That stat is not adjusted for inflation and when compared to this stat it is not bad.
    Conservative: Who cares about inflation? Do you think the people of 1985 cared about inflation while they were unemployed?
    Rational Person: That doesn't make sense.
    Conservative: OMG check out this statistic B! Obama sucks!
    Rational Person: Those numbers are eerily close to Reagan.
    Conservative: Yeah but Reagan had to deal with inflation!
    Rational Person: I thought you didn't care about inflation?
    Conservative: OMG check out this statistic C! Obama is so bad!
    Rational Person: Bush racked up almost the same amount of debt in the same amount of time!
    Conservative: OMG check out this statistic A! Obama is so bad!
    Rational Person: Didn't I already debunk statistic A? Here's why:...
    Conservative: OMG check out statistic B!

    Is there any chance he is just a spam bot that gets debunked and then posts the next random statistic he finds?

    George W. Bush rode into Washington almost eight years ago astride the horse of smaller government. He will leave it this winter having overseen the biggest federal budget expansion since Franklin Delano Roosevelt seven decades ago.
    Big government gets bigger - Washington Times
    As a result, Mr. Bush already is the first president in history to implement budgets that crossed the $2 trillion a year and $3 trillion a year marks. His final budget, which comes to an end Sept. 30, conceivably could near $4 trillion, depending on the final tab for the financial rescue.
    Mr. Bush campaigned in 2000 on a pledge to reduce the size of government, continuing a trend that had been under way since the end of the Cold War. But since terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, he has done what he thought was necessary to keep the country safe. That commitment became a centerpiece of his 2004 convention speech: “Whatever it takes.”

    Bush was sooooo great...
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
