    How does a liberal cut Federal Income taxes for someone not paying any? Absolutely amazing how you are so concerned about how much money gets to the Federal Govt. and thus is wasted by that govt.

    So you can't think of any benefit to the middle class to vote to continue the tax cuts for the rich either?

    I don't think the upper class is too concerned about you joining them, certainly not as much as you are trying to get the upper class to join you. Amazing how most conservatives fight for the right of people like you to keep more of what you earn. The least you could do is say "thank you."

    Because most people with a brain understand that you cannot tax the rich enough to support the liberal spending appetite and that keeping more of what you earn is never an expense to the govt

    And most people with a brain of any decency realize that the rich don't need all that money.

    What part of that do you not understand?
    When you talk about the Republican candidates, you have to say "Mitt or Newt," else you'll have to say "Neuter Mitt."

    Where have you been misled???

    Again the poll question was "Can/Should the Budget Deficit Be Reduced with Spending Cuts Alone or Should There Be Some Increase in Taxes?" not merely 'tax cuts for the rich'.
    Exactly, as I've noted, the only time in the last 30 years that we have reduced the deficit significantly is when we both cut spending and increased taxes on the rich.

    The Democrats are the only ones that have proposed doing both.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    If govt acted responsible, there wouldn't need to be tax hikes on anyone! Both parties are guilty. Financially responsible men, either aquired or inherited wealth, but in either case MAINTAINED wealth, seem to lose perspective in the halls of govt. Hey! A million here and a million there, and after awhile we're talking REAL money! seems the prevailing pork barrel attitude.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    The part that seems to claim you know what other people need or even what they do with their money. Bet my church and local charities believe I pay enough in taxes and would like to see me keep more of what I earn. You on the otherhand buy the liberal rhetoric that money needs to go to the Federal govt. because they can spend it better and more effeciently than you can yourself.

    Most people agree we must both cut spending and eliminate the tax cuts for the rich. There are 23 recent polls that confirm that. Only one party has proposed doing both.
