Perhaps when Obama is finished his second term things will improve as the tea baggers don't have a black man to hate anymore. That's really what most of the trouble is all about and when it's gone so too will be Cruz's support. He depends on it to support his agenda of negativism and hate.

Income inequality in this country is a problem with the individual and isn't something a free society legislates. What is preventing you and others from getting a piece of that pie? The pie isn't finite, it continues to grow. When someone gets richer that doesn't mean someone else gets poorer. It is all up to you to be what you are capable of being. I quite frankly don't care what someone else makes or pays in taxes, why do you? The country was built on equal opportunity not equal outcome.
You did not read what you wrote, you did not read my response, you did not read the letter from Lew.
You just had a complete breakdown of how to operate on a forum.
Yesterday you claimed I was a paid Democratic operative. I think today you proved you are a piece of software.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
My bureaucrats are not in Washington. I'm a Canadian who is living under a system that works. Your system is not working. Your solution of somehow bringing back equal opportunity lacks specificity and substance. It's nothing more than parroting the agenda of the wealthy that has 9/10's of your country snookered into giving up their piece of the pie.
Yes, I understand that your fellow Americans who are doing without are not important to you. You regard them as freeloaders.
It's just amazing how so many ordinary people are supportive of the bagger agenda and working against their own best interests. Obama hate has to be the biggest problem and that won't disappear until Obama does. When that happens the bagger agenda will be defused completely I predict.
This could happen as early as when there is a prospect of a new president. Perhaps when the presidential campaigns get in full swing. The baggers and their supporters will be left with nothing to hate anymore and that will turn them into ordinary people who can understand that they need to improve their lot in life. It doesn't take much intelligence to figure out how, and that won't involve supporting the agenda of the Koch brothers!!
Ah, there it is....Always a 'but'...But...
Straight to the talking point mischaracterizations eh? No one want's to "take food out of babies mouths"....That is a horribly unfair go to when ever liberals perceive the slightest cut to the out of control entitlement society. Nor, do we want to cut education, or infrastructure. Education should be a local entity, and infrastructure is constitutionally mandated. As for aid to foreign countries, I say go for it, but it is a microscopically small part of the overall budget. As for subsidies, there could be a fair conversation, but to throw it out there like you did, many jump on it as anti corporate babble....what I find puzzling is that some prefer to take the food out of babies mouths, cut education and/or infrastructure before we cut-off aid to foreign countries that aren't worth pissing on or closing tax loopholes (or outright hard-cash subsidies,) to some of the most profitable industries in the country.
Well, everyone has their own sacred cow, the trick is to get back to the basics, and go from there.I think we all agree that the spending needs to be cut. It's WHERE we cut that has the people divided.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
