    Unless, of course, he's become a trickle down supply sider expecting tax cuts to increase revenues in a new move toward voodoo economics.

    I think we're a bit short on details at this point.




    It was proposed by a Democrat. That's the only detail that really matters to the Republican leadership.
    Is it possible to post a comment on this site that is not partisan, stupid or both. Just last week, Harry Reid said he would not even review the proposal of his own committee chairman because the tax reform was revenue neutral. So when Obama says cut rates and spend the EXTRA revenues on a new stimulus package, even the folks on this site should be able to understand he is calling for a tax increase and additional spending.

    So if you are for neither, why do you need the details as azgreg and others call for to understand that this is a blatant partisan attack versus an attempt at compromise.

    Supporting what? You think it is the Federal Govt's role to create jobs or the atmosphere for the private sector to create jobs? The govt. doesn't invest, it spends and any job created has to be funded after the initial funding runs out so who does that? You want badly to believe what Obama says but lack the ability to think beyond the moment and the cost to the taxpayers for those spending programs.

    Let's also remember that Obama is proposing a reduction in rates, not revenues which he expects to increase. He will do this by eliminating deductions. Sen. Reid would not even consider a corporate tax package that was revenue NEUTRAL.

    Provide incentive, do you understand the word and definition? You think Obamacare and higher taxes is incentive for a private business owner who cannot print money to create jobs and grow their business? Try responding to what I posted rather than diverting as usual.

    Harry Reid is still sitting on dozens of House passed bills yet the Republican House is called Obstructionist. Amazing how brainwashed Obama supporters are

    Oh wait so promoting and providing incentive arent the same? I think im following the line here: "anything and everything Obama does is wrong, even if its in the Republican parties agenda"

    What has Obama done to promote private sector hiring? You think this proposal promotes hiring by doing nothing to lower corporate tax rates? Everything Obama has done has been wrong so what is your point? The economic numbers don't lie but liberals do
