    What effort? The report says deficit is going to go up, no debt is going to be paid down. Congress just passed approval of more debt, more spending, and no changes to taxes. And all the are talking about is more of the same. Obamas on tv right now saying hes going to force the govt to pay contractors more.

    Which he offset with things like ACA that drives up costs. Ask the people of West Virginia how they feel about Obama and his EPA. How did the state of South Carolina feel about the NLRB? Loans have to be paid back and if you have higher operating costs it is harder to pay back those loans. I worked a lot with the SBA and other govt. agencies that made loans to business. That is not a pro growth economic policy when it is offset by higher operating costs.

    Wow, star wars brought the Soviet Union to its knees and left a peace dividend. Why don't you distinguish for us the difference between the Federal, State, and local governments in your world and whose responsibility it is to help those people. As stated you believe in a large central govt. that has created a 17.3 trillion dollar debt that continues to grow as does the poverty level and people dependent on the federal govt. Isn't it time for positive results and shrinking the federal govt. since they are a total and complete failure?



    What Obama and Bush did was reward bad behavior, nothing has changed, interest rates remain low but the demand for loans is miniscule because high operating expenses.. Obama has no concept of what it takes to run a business, the operating expenses of running a business, where that money comes from,the components of GDP and minions like you buy the rhetoric and continue to support him. When did you develop such low standards for achievement and results?




    "Uncle" Ronnie cut ALL Personal income taxes not just the rich and 17 million jobs were created. You have a distorted view of the 80's which gets fuzzier the further from the 80's we get. GDP doubled, FIT revenue grew 60% and it led to the greatest era of economic expansion in history. You can try to rewrite history but the facts simply destroy you




    If you truly spent your career growing small businesses then you would understand the effects of less spendable income resulting from higher taxes.. I doubt seriously you grew anything. Figure out the four components of GDP and get back to us and what those components contribute in percentage. Then and only then will you realize how screwed up the liberal economic policies are

    you continue to expose your ignorance of things economic
    never have i encountered a small or large business which chose to end a business or not to begin a business because of the federal tax rate. everyone would prefer to pay zero. but that is not how government works
    and you seem to be unable to grasp why cutting taxes for the wealthy is a stupid thing to do, economically
    when dollars are put in the pockets of lower income families, they spend it. the money has a much higher velocity than when the money is left in the pockets of the rich. the rich may buy more expensive cars, homes, appliances, but once they have bought what they want and need they will save the rest. it will remain idle. in contrast, those average American families will be buying less expensive items, but they will be buying more of them in aggregate; that fuels the demand side of the economy. which is why those who actually have a clue recognize that government sending should be scaled back only when the economy rebounds. until then, government spending is an essential ingredient to our nation's economic recovery
    but the stupid republicans, when we again balance our budget, will continue to incur deficits in order to give more tax breaks to the rich. they learned nothing from the past, economically, just as they learned nothing about vietnam militarily, when engaging in an unnecessary and expensive war in iraq
    but i have reason to hope. many of our kids today are able to recognize the manure that you and your ilk spread, for what it is
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Spoken like a typical liberal, there is much more to running a business and paying expenses than Federal Income tax rates which just goes to show how little you understand about business operating expenses. There is a reason that businesses are flocking to TX and North Dakota, wonder if you can figure it out?

    You seem to have bought into the fact that the govt. needs the money more than the American people regardless of income class. Why is that? You think there is enough money that can be extorted from the rich to fund the liberal spending appetite? You simply don't have a clue. You must be among the large group of liberals who always spend more and create more economic activity when you have less spendable income because of higher taxes that cut your take home pay?

    How do you cut taxes of people who don't pay FIT? Isn't that welfare?

    Sorry, but as usual you are out of touch with reality. 21 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers are contributing what to the economy and the revenue for the country?

    The manure being spread is coming from liberals, typical liberal bs that promotes class warfare and class envy. That will generate nothing for the betterment of this country but will create a bunch of govt. dependent little minions that keep liberals in power and keep spending someone else's money
