    can you provide data to show how much tax revenue was brought in from the 'saved' 2.6 million jobs (most of which were not actually saved)? It would be nice to compare it to the 10 billion dollar loss the public took.

    We can make guesses, like most of the jobs were probably not high level tax bracket jobs, and most of those near the bottom get so many 'credits' and such that a good portion pay 0 in federal taxes… so odds are, your line above is total BS. Will wait for you to support it with empirical evidence.

    So...as as a "progressive" you are a big fan of corporate bailouts...right?

    You better not lie, and look at the lists of GMC union workers.

    So.. as an independent you have no idea what you stand for, right? There's only two things in the middle of the road, yellow lines and dead possums. You either stand for something or you don't. It's better to stand up for what you believe as opposed to having no idea what you believe in.

    As for corporate bail outs.. When the American Auto industry is on the line, along with millions of Jobs and livelihoods, I'm all for it. The backlash from letting GM die would be far greater than you can imagine.

    If you stand for something, then how about you actually answer his question? Those who stand for something can give direct answers. Are you a fan of corporate bailouts or not?

    Look how cute you are. You sound a little like George Bush there. You are either with us or against us. Of course...the situational ethics...those are awesome too. You HATE corporate bailouts...unless it is done by your guy in which case you LOVE them...corporate bailouts are AWESOME...who care if the taxpayers ate it to the tune of 25% of their 'investment'...as long as the GM executives stayed employed...right? "Stick it to the man, man! Wait...we are the man? Dammit!!!...I mean...the man is AWESOME and deserves to be bailed out! Just not those OTHER men...**** them..."

    As an independent I DO have a very clear idea of what I am for and against. The difference is I didnt cave on those principles depending on what the political party of the sitting president was. You...you are just a caricature. Your belief system is built on convenience and politics. Thats...tragic.
