    Good news for America is bad news for Conservatives.
    I am sure you were celebrating when the stock market went over 14000 during the Bush term. Of course then we had a growing labor force, positive job growth, lower unemployment, low discouraged workers, and net job gains.

    Spews the poster who thought investment funds (not counting the profits) were taxed twice. Despite the insults you hurl as cover in a vain attempt to pretend like you know more than your betters, you actually prove that you're the one who doesn't understand.

    Yes, of course I was. I have a lot of money invested in my 401K. Thanks to Obama's policies, my 401K is making a comeback after I lost a ****load on Bush's watch.

    So you managed your 401k poorly before, and now you are better at it, and you give all the credit to Obama's policies. Makes one wonder what compensation one gets by posting such wonderful niceties.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Those gains in your 401K? Better realize them. The stock market has been manipulated by near-zero interest rates set by the Federal government under Obama's watch. When interest rates begin to rise, you'd better be ready to pull the trigger.

    By the by, when Bush left office the DJIA stood at 8400. Four months in to Obama's presidency, thanks in part to Obama's inability to lead and instill confidence, the market plummeted to 6500 in 2009. The market only began recovering when it was socially engineered to do so -- by the Obama Administration lowering interest rates to near-zero.

That is typical liberalism of passing the buck and claiming that you care. If you truly cared you would start your own business, pay those employees the salary you think is fair, send in more in tax revenue than required, but no, you would rather spread your misery equally to everyone else telling others how to live and how unfair they are.

    From your post you have no concept of being in business for yourself. Would love to see you take my advice and start your own business. Get back to me afterwards.
    Shows what you know, I have has a sucessful business for 32 years.
    I sad the Progressive tax structure has nothing to do with compassion (although why you find it a 4 letter word is beyond me) it is PURELY FUNCTIONAL. Our economy survives on spending, taking tax money form people who spend every dime slows economic growth by reducing their spending. Taxing income NOT spent by the earner boosts the economy when the Govt. spends it. There you have it...progressive taxes increase growth and GDP. Be proud that you are part of it.

    Obama has made Bush look good,

    Obama net job loss
    Obama net unemployment gains
    Obama net labor force loss
    Obama record amount of discouraged workers
    Obama higher misery index
    Obama 4.6 trillion added to the debt
    Obama crony capitalism

    Simple facts that the true left ideologues ignore

    IN YOUR OPINION, TD...

    Personally, there's not one person in government today I'd give you 2 cents for...including Dems Repubs, Conservatives, and Liberal.

    TD...I'm so happy you believe YOUR CONSERVATIVE REPRESENTATIVES IN GOVERNMENT are honest...beyond corruption, God fearing, Abortion hating....blab, blab, blah..

    Our government is broke, TD...and that includes the friends in office that you can call.

    And it shows how much you know, I ran a successful business for 35 years employing over 1200 people

    A progressive tax structure only exists at the top income levels as there are enough deductions to prevent lower income workers from paying any FIT

    The govt. needs money to operate but where i disagree with liberals is that I don't believe we need a 3.8 trillion dollar Federal budget. Govt. spending creates debt and does little to grow the economy long term. Short term there are some benefits but as we are seeing now the GDP is less than 2%. Govt spending accounts for about 20% of GDP, consumer spending and consumption about 2/3
