    We disagree, I don't see 17 million jobs, doubling of GDP after inheriting a double dip recession, cutting income taxes three years in a row that led to a 60% increase in FIT revenue as negative economic results all at a cost of 1.7 trillion to the debt which was still less than 50% of GDP. You seem to believe debt is bad which it isn't if you have the results to justify it. there are no such justification for the 6.8 trillion increase in debt under Obama

    Obama will say something profound on this issue, like "I inherited this mess and the Republicans have done nothing but obstructed all of my efforts to help Main Street", and the Obamabots will bob their collective heads in agreement, say what a wonderful smart man he is, and that this is all because of Bush, Cheney, Halliburton, and the Party of No.
    And the next thing the leftists are going to say is to fix it, more government regulation and taxation needs to be passed.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Taxes are a necessary evil and to whom much is given much is required. I don't like my tax dollars being used to purchase WMD to kill Iraqis with and I don't like my tax dollars being used to finance social services I disagree with. But such is the case. It was a republican president that presided over the highest tax bracket on the rich. A republican that recognised that the rich could afford a higher margin and still live their opulent life styles.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Yup. I give Paul Krugman 2 days before he publishes one of his usual BS, the Republicans suck and we have to spend our way into oblivion hack pieces, which will be picked up by his fans here and posted in at least 5 different places.

    Of course we disagree. That was established long ago. And that's what makes you right, RIGHT.

    Yes, taxes are a necessary evil to fund for the Constitution requirements of a Federal Govt. for all other issues there are state taxes. You don't seem to understand what your taxes fund.

    Why can the rich afford higher taxes, because you say so? Why can't the Federal govt. do more with less since many believe the Federal Govt. is the answer and can negotiate better rates. You seem to have a very distorted view as to the role of the Federal Govt. and I'll bet you have no clue what your taxes are supposed to fund. Why is it people like you have a problem with what someone else makes or pays in taxes and not the 3.9 trillion dollar govt. Obama proposed?

    Results matter, personal responsibility matters, freedom of choice matters even if someone makes the wrong choice. Bad choices mean bad consequences except in the liberal world where it is always someone else's fault

    Conservatives predicted 16 quarters of positive growth, and two quarters of negative growth, most likely to be followed by several quarters of positive growth, back in 2008? Who knew?

    Here it is. Had to go get it off MTAs favorites folder. As you can see if it wasnt for the Bush tax cuts for the rich, there would be peace in the middle east and free puppies.
