It isn't a rightwing tool, it is reality. There isn't enough money to fund this govt. and Obama thinks the govt. needs to take a bigger role. We weren't built on that foundation.

    No, it's a right wing tool attacking a straw man.

    Really? so where is this video wrong? What strawman, the 3.7 trillion dollar budget? We have a 15. 1 trillion dollar debt so why are neither resonating with you? You have no concept of what 3.7 trillion dollars is thus this video explains it to you and yet you still don't want to believe. You actually think that the rich can fund the liberal spending appetite?

    The straw man is that liberals think they solve the problem just by taxing the rich. In fact liberals are perfectly well aware that we have to both cut spending and raise taxes to close the budget gap.

    Raising taxes on everyone? That isn't what "Your" President is proposing nor has there been any real cuts proposed, just reductions in the increase in spending. The video shows exactly what 3.7 trillion dollars is and isn't but that fact escapes you. I am still waiting for an explanation as to how any rich person made you poorer or anyone else poorer?

    Yes, eventually raising taxes on everyone. But not until the economy is on a solid footing.

    Currently I don't think everyone would mind paying a little more taxes and would probably have very little economic effect IF...the government didn't WASTE our monies so obviously...snow cone machines for DHS (as reported on Current TV by Oberman)...REALLY? If they spent our money more wisely the increase in confidence would over overshadow the perceived effect on the economy. IMHO

    Raising taxes on the rich helps reduce the deficit. You know, that deficit that you constantly harp about? Not familiar with any class warfare. Does it have a website?

    Only in your dreams. How do you know how much revenue if any raising the taxes on the rich will generate and what message does that send to the American income earners?

    I am still waiting for you to explain to me how any rich person made you poorer for that seems to be the issue with "your" President as he talks about fairness and fair share.
