    Re: For the First Time, Canadians Now Richer Than Americans. Thanks, Obama!

    Canada is basically like one huge Vermont or Oregon, its a country that as far less religious than the United States, more socially liberal, with strong environmental regulations, much stronger banking regulations than we have, a universal health care system, progressive taxation, tougher gun laws, and the most right wing conservatives there are about where Susan Collins sits here.... So this is what the Republicans now want for America? Sign me up then.

    and the part where it says keynesians believe targeting those with less income favors more for tax cuts,explain 85% of the bush tax cuts going to poor and middle class,you cant.

    your democrat masters have already told you the snarl words to use and you have failed to verify if they are even true,you just blindly believe their words and skewed statistics.
    What part of "Proponents of Keynesian economics and related theories often criticize tax rate cuts for the wealthy as being "trickle down," arguing tax cuts directly targeting those with less income would be more economically stimulative. Keynesians generally argue for broad fiscal policies that are directed across the entire economy, not toward one specific group." didn't you understand?


    Study: Bush Tax Cuts Favor Wealthy

    "President Bush's tax cuts since 2001 have shifted more of the tax burden from the nation's rich to middle-class families, according to a study released Friday by the Congressional Budget Office.

    The tax rate declined across all income levels ó but more so in the top brackets, the report said.

    The study found that the effective tax rate for the top 1 percent of taxpayers dropped from 33 percent in 2001 to 26.7 percent this year, a decline of 19 percent. The middle 20 percent of taxpayers saw a decline of 4 percent."

    Do you disagree with this statement?

    The federal government spent more taxpayer dollars than ever before in 2011 to subsidize Americans. The average individual who relies on Washington could receive benefits valued at $32,748, more than the nationís average disposable personal income ($32,446).

    How about this statement.

    As of now, 70 percent of the federal governmentís budget goes to individual assistance programs, up dramatically in just the past few years. However, research shows that private, community, and charitable aid helps individuals rise from their difficulties with better success than federal government handouts. Plus, local and private aid is often more effectively distributed.

    These are well-established facts, by the way!
    And it is a horse**** argument!

    The reason is quite logical... there are more OLD PEOPLE! More old people = more SS = more government handouts in a statistic.. so in other words, it is partisan bull**** as usual.

    Not very much.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    This is not a minor point. The U.S. is for all intents and purposes subsidizing healthcare elsewhere in the world. Not to mention the cost savings a nation has when someone else is footing the bill for its security.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Bull**** alarm. Who claims this? Oh yea the big-pharma industry... The same industry that uses far more in marketing than they use in R&D! Sorry but it is utter bull**** and can not be backed up by any independent source.

    What happened to the OP? Did this thread not go as planned?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith
