    Congress decides the tax rate.

    Our economy isn't finite, it isn't a zero sum game, never has been in spite of what you and others want the people to believe. Where in the Constitution does it say Provide for Domestic Welfare? That is a state and local responsibility not a federal one.

    The best defense sometimes is a good offense. A good offense keeps the defense off the field. 9/11 cost the economy over a trillion dollars and that was because of so called defense. Your continued posts on Iraq and the past serve no purpose. You cannot change the past, only change the future and what you are doing is adding nothing but more debt by ignoring personal responsibility on social issues.

    Do you? can you explain how a zero sum game exists in an economy that was 9.9 trillion in 2000 and 14.4 trillion in 2008? Do you realize that a growing economy is what creates jobs and liberalism benefits when fewer jobs are created and thus more dependence?

    So you believe that money grows on trees?

    "Promote the General Welfare".

    Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Iraq wasn't going to attack us.

    Yes, I get a kickback every time someone signs up for welfare.

    The govt. prints money every year. That's why the numbers increase. Money doesn't grow on trees, though.

    No it grows from new products, new services, and new businesses along with population growth.

    Promote doesn't mean provide

    Did you really just point to the three Democrat Wars that used the "Red Scare" to justify those wars and then attack them for being sympathetic to Communism?
    The "Red Scare" was entirely legitimate if you are at all familiar with Communist regimes, those who were forced to live under them or the tens of millions who died under Communism.

    Being a leftist doesn't mean that you should ignore history altogether, or is that a prerequisite to being a leftist?.

    Yes, the govt. is propping up the economy to mask the failed Obama economic plan. That money is keeping interest rates low which masks the debt service on the 17 trillion dollar debt.
