    So your answer is to go after people who really can't afford to have their taxes increased (the lower and middle classes), while giving tax breaks to those who can (the rich). Got it.

It's a shell game, and you are being conned for class warfare.

    Actually de-criminalizing and regulating drugs would get rid of most of the budget for DEA, so yeah it would save. Good suggestion Rev, I'm sure you'll be behind it 100%.

    The reason we don't legalize drugs is because of conservatives that believe the government knows best. Hmmmmm where have I heard conservatives say something against that before.

    I always have been, The Good Reverend cares not, who you ****, marry, or shoot drugs with. It's not my business, nor the governments.

    Not from me.....


    Furthermore, you want it to all add up?

    You can't do more than one thing at a time? I have no problem starting on that list as well as decriminalization of drugs.

    I agree do both, stop wasting time throwing a tantrum over people like The Good Reverend making more money than you.

    Nope. Its not "50 here and 50 there". See Obama's own Simpson Bowles commission. Obama is not talking about that.

    It is 40 billion less is what it is. It is 40 billion that we arent paying interest on.

    You are never going find any measure that is going to completely eliminate the debt immediately that will be acceptable. The way we are going to reduce it is by passing bills that will cut a few million here and there, and working to increase the amount of money our government in generating. Every little bit helps and it all adds up.

    Unfortunately, that is not what the intent is with the Buffet Rule, and is not what is happening here. The Buffet Rule is not about reducing debt. Obama said almost 4 years ago that he recognizes that increasing taxes on Capital Gains ends up producing less revenue to the government. Obama said such increases were about being "fair".

    The Buffet Rule is about politics. Its about diverting attention from the problem, and empowering politicians to stay in power, while the masses stay stupid, and off the cliff we go.

    Your spin is to be as one more lemming on this.

    Here. Its at about 1:05
