Conservative ideals aren't spending more money in the name of compassion only to get failed results? People truly in need should be helped by the state and local communities, NOT the Federal taxpayers.Tettsuo;1060146742]Deficit and debt are not the same thing. FIRST, you have to correct your deficit before you can effectively address the debt. Of course, this doesn't change the fact that Conservative ideals have increased the DEFICIT everytime they were enacted.
You say it doesn't work, facts prove differently. People with more spendable income always help the economy, whether it is paying down personal debt, investing them one, saving it, or spending it, it helps. How does you keeping more of what you earn "send the economy down the tubes?" Why don't you find out what taxes are supposed to fund and get back to me? How about finding out the true role of the Federal Govt. and getting back to me. You don't seem to have a clue what FIT funds or is supposed to fund nor what state taxes fund and are supposed to fund. Therein lies the problem with liberalismYou've all but ignored the fact that Conservatives continue to preach to you the solution of cutting taxes will heal the broken economy. It hasn't happened. They've not changed their tune in any way, shape or form. When will to open your eyes to the fact that as soon as a Conservatives implements their plan of tax cutting and regulations smashing, the nation doesn't straight down the tubes? There is a cost for living into America. Pay it or get out. Conservatives don't want to pay and don't rules to regulation their bad behavior, but they want a safe society with roads and airports and all the amenities of a strong country. They just want it at the cost of Somalia or any crap hole 3rd world country. That doesn't work.
[/QUOTE]Yet Reagan, Bush 1 and 2 have all increased the national DEFICIT by huge amounts. Guess what? The plan didn't work as advertised. The middle class shrunk while the rich increased their wealth. That's not progress, that's the nation devolving into a 3rd world country. So again, explain how Conservative ideals have improved the country. Explain how the current batch is any different than Bush Jr. Explain how they will avoid the same pitfalls that Bush didn't avoid. How will cutting regulations some more benefit business and how cutting taxes when we can't afford the rebuild our infrastructure will benefit the average American.
Yes, the deficits during the Reagan and Bush Administrations increased just like they increased during the Clinton years and now have been put on steroids by Obama. This station is evolving into Greece or any other European style economy. Conservatives believe individuals can spend their money better and get better results than a bureaucrat in D.C.
The current batch in D.C. has expanded the role of the govt. and tried to lesson the role of the states. What happens to state revenue when the govt. increases Federal taxes?
Looks to me like your Governor realizes that you cannot tax your way to prosperity. Doing more of what NY has done in the past led to massive leaving of business and taxpayers from your state. Better think about the effects of raising Federal Taxes on your state taxes as more and more people will leave high tax states to lower tax states to pay for the rise in Federal taxesNYC education taught me if a particular plan doesn't work, you don't repeat that plan expecting a different result
